1899 O Morgan Silver Dollar & 1899 Black Eagle Silver Certificate



The image of the coin(s) is a representation and not the actual photo of the coin won during auction.

The 1899 Dollar Black Eagle Silver Certificate and the 1899 O Morgan Dollar are here presented together, as they both represent the last Dollar Currency and the last Silver Dollar of the 19th Century.

The legendary Black Eagle $1 1899 Silver Certificate is a true classic of American paper money history and was first issued in 1899. The central image features a powerful Bald Eagle and smaller portrait images of presidents Lincoln and Grant. The large blue seal denotes these as Silver Certificates which could have been redeemed at the time for real silver.

This historic note will arrive sealed inside a protective holder, complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.


The Morgan dollar was a United States dollar coin minted intermittently from 1878 to 1921. It was the first standard silver dollar minted since production of the previous design, the Seated Liberty dollar, ceased due to the passage of the Fourth Coinage Act, an act which also ended the free coining of silver. The coin is named for its designer, United States Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan. The obverse depicts a profile portrait representing Liberty, while the reverse depicts an eagle with wings outstretched.

The dollar was authorized by the Bland?Allison Act. Following the passage of the Fourth Coinage Act, mining interests lobbied to restore the free coinage. Instead, the Bland?Allison Act was passed, which required the Treasury to purchase between two and four million dollars worth of silver at market value to be coined into dollars each month. In 1890, the Bland?Allison Act was repealed by the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, which required the Treasury to purchase 4,500,000 troy ounces (140,000 kg) of silver each month, but only required further silver dollar production for one year. This act, in turn, was repealed in 1893.

In 1898, Congress approved a bill that required all remaining bullion purchased under the Sherman Silver Purchase Act to be coined into silver dollars. When in 1904, those silver reserves were depleted, the Mint ceased to strike the Morgan dollar. The Pittman Act, passed in 1918, authorized the melting and recoining of millions of silver dollars. Pursuant to the act, Morgan dollars resumed mintage for one year in 1921. The design was replaced by the Peace dollar later the same year.

What is Proxy Bidding?

Proxy bidding is a convenient way to automatically bid on your items without having to continually return to your computer to check on your auctions. A Proxy Bid is a bid automatically placed by the auction system on your behalf based on the Maximum Bid Amount that you set for the particular listing. Each time you place a bid by entering your maximum bid amount (which is the most you're willing to pay for an item), you will be using our Proxy bidding system. If another bidder places a bid on your item, Proxy bidding will then bid automatically on your behalf and at the lowest possible bid increments, but not more than the maximum you specified.

The goal is to win an item at the lowest successful price. To do so, you must be the bidder who placed the highest maximum bid at auction close. You will be notified by email if another bidder has surpassed your maximum bid. In case of a tie for high bidder, earlier bids will take precedence.

Time Left to Bid and Overtime Bidding

Time Left to Bid

Exchange Auctions displays a countdown clock to the auction close time. This countdown clock represents the time you have left to bid on that auction. If a bid is placed within the last 5 minutes of the auction close time, that auction will go into overtime.

Overtime Bidding

The Overtime Bidding feature works to ensure that bidders will always have a chance to challenge bids placed in the final seconds of an auction. When indicated on a listing page, if a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of an open auction, the auction will be automatically extended for an additional 5 minutes from the time of the latest bid. There is no limit to the number of times an auction can be extended. Therefore, it is recommended that you check back frequently as an auction nears closing time. The auction will close once all bidding activity has stopped for a period of 5 minutes.

Note: If you have placed a bid when Overtime Bidding is engaged, you should refresh or reload your browser frequently (every 3 - 5 secs) so that it displays the most current bid status information.

What is Bid Increment?

The bid increment is the specified minimum amount you must bid over the current bid amount.

What is an English Auction?

In an English auction, buyers bid until the auction ends. The item is then sold to the highest bidder at the end of the auction period.

What is a Yankee Auction?

In a Yankee Auction, a product lot (a quantity of 2 or more identical products) goes up for auction at a starting price. You attempt to outbid other buyers by offering more money for one or more pieces in the lot. Your bid price is per each single piece and you may bid for more than one piece.

At the close of the auction, the products are awarded to the highest bidder(s) at the price they bid and for the quantity they bid for up to the available auction lot.

As an example, if 5 units are up for auction, and Bidder A bids $200 for 2 pieces, and Bidder B bids $175 for 1 piece and Bidder C bids $160 for 2 pieces, and Bidder D bids $150 for 1 piece. Bidders A, B, and C would all be winning bidders at the price each of them bid and for the quantity each of them bid for. Bidder D would be a losing bidder.

In the event that two different bidders bid the same price, then the winner is based on the quantity bid for and the time the bid was placed. Higher quantity and earliest bids take preference.

NOTE: There is no proxy bidding feature with Yankee auctions. If you win, the price you bid is the price you pay.

What does "MBV" mean?
MBV = Maximum Bid Value

Maximum Bid Value
We understand that in the heat of the moment that occurs during the final hours and minutes of an auction you may bid more than you can find the item elsewhere. In our efforts to fulfill our commitment that every auction participant has a winning experience we provide you a maximum bid value as a guide to not exceed. In the jewelry and watch industry retail pricing depends upon when and where an item is purchased. An individual can find the same or similar items in a discount department store for hundreds to thousands less than a boutique watch/jewelry store. When we establish the Maximum Bid Value we utilize the retail pricing method established by those boutique jewelry stores. "MBV" price reflects a price suggested by the manufacturer or supplier of these goods, without reference to actual retail sales price, in accordance with standard industry practices.

Bidding 101
We encourage all auction bidders to understand and review the marketplace prior to finalizing their bids. A successful bidder is one that knows the marketplace, enjoys hunting for the best bargains and thrives on the auction competition, you love to win! Our goal is for you to have a fun and engaging auction experience with an excellent out of box experience when your winnings arrive at your door.

In addition to the great values you determine through the $1 start bid, No Reserve Auctions, we offer the ability to earn Bid Bucks in the amount of 5% of your total net Winning Auction purchases for a calendar month. These Bid Bucks can be applied as a discount towards your next winning auction of the following month.
