Large quantities were released into circulation shortly after being minted, and more were released by the Treasury in 1938<ref>Bowers, Q. D. ''A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars'Rotation Range', 5th ed. Atlanta: Whitman, 2016. p. 182</ref>. Strike is usually weak and luster can be muddy, so cherrypicking quality is important. Prooflike coins aren''|-| 1 || t terribly scarce, and often tend to have good contrast and good strikes. One reverse die has an oval O mint mark ([[1889-O VAM-2|| VAM 2]]) and is quite scarce in mint state. There are two clashed E reverse coins, [[1889-O VAM-11A1|VAM-11A]] || 60and [[1889-150 CW|O VAM-| 2 |20A| VAM 20A]], both quite scarce. [[1889-O VAM-6|| VAM 6]] is a ''Top 100'' variety with fairly strong repunching on the date. [[1889-O VAM-313B|VAM-313B]] || 23shows strong "crumbling" of the stars on the obverse from severe die deterioration. VAMs [[1889-73 CW|O VAM-| 3 |1| 1]], [[1889-O VAM-3|| 3]], and [[1889-O VAM-9|VAM-9]] || 25-47 CW|}are known with rotated reverses.
