First Year of Issue Morgan Silver Dollars 8 Tail Feathers and 7 Tail Feathers Variety -2 Piece Set
 
When Morgan Silver Dollars made their debut in 1878, the original design featured an eagle with 8 tail feathers. it was soon discovered that this was an incorrect number as bald eagles always have an uneven number of tail feathers. Only three-quarters of a million coins  were struck with the 8TF design before the change was made. This two-piece set has the original 1878 coin struck with 8 Tail Feathers and the modified design issued later in the year showing the eagle with 7 Tail Feathers. Both coins have been certified by PCGS in Gem Uncirculated Mint State 65 (MS65) condition.
 
MS65 is a premium grade for these varieties. Only about 150 coins have ever been certified in a higher grade by PCGS.
