1887 has one of the highest mintages of the Morgan dollar series and is common in all grades.  The average production per die pair was over 350,000 coins, which gives us many LDS coins with mushy details and orange-peel luster due to die wear. Prooflike coins are available, but are understandably a small percentage of the uncirculated population.  1887 sports the only Morgan overdates outside of 1880, with the popular 7/6 ([[1887-P VAM-2|VAM 2]]).  Variety collectors can choose from many types of varieties for this date. There are several repunched dates for 1887, including the ''Top 100'' [[1887-P VAM-5|VAM 5]], a nice die break on the [[1887-P VAM-25A|VAM 25A]] "Donkey Tail", a clashed E on the reverse of [[1887-P VAM-1B|VAM 1B]], a popular doubled die obverse on [[1887-P VAM-12|VAM 12]], and a few dates in the denticles ([[1887-P VAM-11|VAMs 11]], [[1887-P VAM-13|13]], [[1887-P VAM-17|17]], and [[1887-P VAM-19|19]]).  [[1887-P VAM-27|VAM 27]] is known with a rotated reverse.

Mintage 20,290,000
Proof Mintage 710
Dies Used 55 obv., 54 rev.
Rarity in PL 5/10 (less common)
Die Study yes

1887 has one of the highest mintages of the Morgan dollar series and is common in all grades. The average production per die pair was over 350,000 coins, which gives us many LDS coins with mushy details and orange-peel luster due to die wear. Prooflike coins are available, but are understandably a small percentage of the uncirculated population. 1887 sports the only Morgan overdates outside of 1880, with the popular 7/6 (VAM 2). Variety collectors can choose from many types of varieties for this date. There are several repunched dates for 1887, including the Top 100 VAM 5, a nice die break on the VAM 25A "Donkey Tail", a clashed E on the reverse of VAM 1B, a popular doubled die obverse on VAM 12, and a few dates in the denticles (VAMs 11, 13, 17, and 19). VAM 27 is known with a rotated reverse.
