Who Killed Johnny Ringo?

Johnny Ringo was a Shakespeare-quoting gunslinger whose wit was as quick as his gun. Soon after settling in Tombstone, Arizona, he aligned himself with the outlaw faction that faced Wyatt Earp. Though he did not take part in the famous gunfight at the OK Corral, his body was found in 1882 lying against a tree in West Turkey Creek Valley with a bullet hole in his head, his horse two miles away with his boots still tied to the saddle. Among the people credited with his killing include Frank Leslie, Michael “Johnny-Behind-the-Deuce,” O’Rourke, Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. In truth no one’s sure just who killed Ringo. With no evidence to point to a guilty party the coroner’s inquest officially ruled his death a suicide.

This 1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar was struck at the New Orleans Mint the same year Johnny Ringo was found dead, his death still an unsolved mystery. Plus, each Morgan Dollar available here is in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition and comes housed in a custom card about this Wild West legend.

COIN HIGHLIGHTS:

  • AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR COIN – The Morgan Silver Dollar — so named for its designer, U.S. Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan — has stood the test of time. Struck from 1878-1904 and again in 1921, it was the coin of America’s “Wild West” and jingled in the coin purses of gamblers, gunfighters, soldiers and dance hall girls.
  • CLASSIC DESIGNS – Morgan’s historic design depicts a profile of Lady Liberty on the obverse while the reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings. The model used for Liberty was Miss Anna Williams of Philadelphia, who Morgan declared to have the most perfect feminine profile he had ever seen.
  • STRUCK IN GLEAMING AMERICAN SILVER – Struck in 26.73 grams of 90% silver from the famous Comstock Lode, the Morgan Silver Dollar is a big coin measuring 38.1 mm in diameter.
  • LEGAL TENDER SILVER DOLLAR – Morgans were $1 legal tender and struck during the heyday of America’s Wild West era where coins were overwhelmingly preferred over paper currency.
  • BRILLIANT UNCIRCULATED CONDITION – Your 1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar was graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.
  • THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING MORGANS – While millions of Morgan Silver Dollars were struck from 1878 through 1921, massive silver meltings and the ravages of time have taken their toll. Today coin experts believe that only 15% of all Morgans ever struck remain in existence!
