Question
what is the value of a 1898 silver dollar says *******(7 STARS) E.PLURIBUS.UNUM ******(6 STARS) on front with woman; eagle on back, bottom of eagle says ONE  DOLLAR

Answer
This time you've asked about the "Morgan dollar."  Again the value of silver sets a floor on what it is worth.  In circulated condition, the 1898 without mint mark (located if any above the letters "Do" in Dollar) 1898 O mint mark (New Orleans) and 1898 S are all common pieces and you would expect to get around $20 to $25 or so selling to a dealer.  Again go to www.ebay.com and do a search for 1898 dollar and you'll see lots for sale, Jim
