Morgan dollar specialist Wayne Miller, who has been called the 'King of Silver Dollars,' writes in The Morgan and Peace Dollar Textbook: "From 1879 to 1883, the only silver...coin struck at the San Francisco mint was the silver dollar. Apparently a less stressful production schedule enabled mint personnel to concentrate on making the silver dollars of these years among the finest this country has ever produced. ... The 1882-S is readily available in gem condition. Most specimens are fully struck, with good luster. ... [It is] the scarcest of the 'S' mint dollars from 1879-1882 in BU condition ..."
There is much romance about the Wild West, the shootout at the O.K. Corral, and other western lore associated with Morgan dollars. Did Wyatt Earp have silver dollars in his pocket when he stopped by the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona Territory, in 1881? It is very possible. Did "Pawnee" Bill, "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Chief Sitting Bull, Billy the Kid, Annie Oakley, or Frank Butler pay for a drink, or provisions, or an article of clothing in the Rockies during the late 1800s? If so, the distinctive clang of a Morgan dollar was heard as it was dropped onto a wooden bar or store counter. Piles of silver dollars sat at the gaming tables in Rhyolite, Tincup, Silver Reef and other gambling towns that dotted the Wild West. In banks, bordellos, and bistros in Helena, Cheyenne, San Francisco, and Denver, cashiers nonchalantly handled silver dollars each and every day.
