Morgan Dollars are a favorite of collectors everywhere. Authorized by the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, the dollars were designed by George T. Morgan, who had been a pupil of Wyon in the Royal Mint in London. His initial M is found at the base of the neck by the last lock of hair on the obverse, and on the reverse on the left most loop of the ribbon. They were made from 1878 to 1921, when the Peace dollar was adopted.
At one time, the 1898-O Morgan dollar was considered to be one of the key coins in the series. Then, at the end of 1962, many bags of "scarce" 1898-O dollars were released from the government vaults where they had been stored for over half a century. This issue, and many other New Orleans dollar dates, dropped rapidly to common status. Prior to this event, collectors had thought that most of this issue had been melted or otherwise lost. The 1898-O issue exhibits a wide range of striking quality. Large quantities exist either fully struck, or adequately struck, or softly struck - take your choice. The same is more or less true of abrasions. It is common to see heavy bagmarks, and it is also common to see few bagmarks. Luster is more consistent than either strike or bagmarks. Most specimens are somewhat unattractive due to inadequate mint luster. As a summarizing statement on this coin's characteristics, it is accurate to say that the majority of the Mint State 1898-O coins are somewhat flatly struck, have average quantities of bagmarks, and are lacking in mint luster. Several coin dealers feel that this issue is not extremely common in mint condition, but there seems to be no doubt that at least one-fourth of all coins seen on the market are in Mint State.

Henry Frederik Stanley Morgan fundo su propio garaje en 1906, aunque no fue hasta 1908-1909 cuando fabrico su primer prototipo de triciclo Morgan, con la ayuda de Sr. Stephenson-Peach era un monoplaza muy espartano, que salio a la venta en 1910 tras ser patentado, un rudimentario automovil de tres ruedas, ni por asomo pensaba que aquello que estaba creando seria el inicio de una leyenda que aun hoy sigue vigente, erigiendose como un marchamo de calidad y distincion que todavia llevan impresos sus productos. Con los anos 30 llego la decadencia de los triciclos. La aparicion de coches economicos de 4 ruedas como el Austin Seven impulso a la marca a fabricar coches, dejando los triciclos en un segundo plano, no obstante, se siguieron fabricando hasta 1952 y se estima que en sus 42 anos de produccion (con dos grandes guerras de por medio) se fabricaron mas de 40.000 triciclos. El 4/4, primer Morgan de cuatro ruedas, aparecio en 1936, y estaba impulsado por un motor Coventry-Climax de cuatro cilindros de 1122cc (4/4 viene de 4 ruedas y 4 cilindros). El Plus 4 llego en 1950, y el Plus 8 en 1968 , Morgan ha seguido durante muchos anos con los estilos clasicos y los metodos de produccion tradicional y artesanal exactamente iguales a los de hace 40 anos.
