Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia, Q. During this period, (1895) the coiners at the New Orleans Mint had a job to do: to coin as many silver dollars as possible in the least amount of time.To say that their workmanship was shoddy would be an understatement; from a numismatic viewpoint, it was terrible. Knowing that most of these silver dollars were not wanted in the channels of commerce and would simply go into bulk storage after they were minted, the workers had little incentive to create an attractive product. To churn out a stream of Morgan dollars with as little attention to the presses as possible, the coiners spaced the dies slightly too far apart, thus minimizing die wear and breakage. The result was as stated: terrible-looking coins. This piece, albeit not originally toned, is guaranteed 100% genuine, and so very well struck!
