1879-O represents the first Morgan dollar coinage after the reopening of the New Orleans mint. These coins tend to be well struck and have good luster, but often come quite marked up, making it important to be selective. Prooflike coins are available and can be found with a cameo appearance. Two different O mint marks were used, with the very large O being used only in 1879. The only varieties of particular interest are the O/Horizontal O varieties, VAM 4 and VAM 28, with VAM 28 being significantly more scarce.
