The Morgan Dollar was created with the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, which required the U.S. government to purchase between $2 million and $4 million monthly
from western mines and coin silver dollars for circulation. In 1878 there are a few variants involving the number of tail feathers (7 Tailfeathers, 8 Tailfeathers, and
7 Over 8 Tailfeathers varieties, etc.) on the eagle and the shape of the eagle’s breast, including flat and round varieties. In 1879 at the San Francisco Mint and in
1880 at the Carson City Mint the Flat Breast reverse was briefly used, but from then on, the Round Breast design remained through 1904. The Morgan Dollar was slightly
redesigned in 1921 during its last year of issue before the debut of the Peace Dollar later that year.
