It was once feared that the Morgan design was lost forever. The only remaining ones were in very rough shape. In 1921 when they decided to bring back the design for the silver dollars that were back in production, there was a collective sigh of relief. The mints produced over 87 million of the Morgan designed coins until the design was replaced in 1922. These coins are even more sought after than the 1921 ones because these were the original ones. Also, nobody really knows how many still exist today. These coins are in good condition which means they are pretty worn but you can still make out their design and date.
