In 1878, the brand new Morgan dollar design made its debut. The original design featured an eagle with 8 tail feathers. However, 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 Morgan’s were struck with the 8TF design before the change was made, making this a rare and popular type for the Morgan dollar series.
