equiry about 1884 silver dollar

Not sure what you are referring to. If the eagle is upside down vs. the liberty head that's the way the coin was made. Coin alignment has the obverse and reverse are set in opposite directions. In medal alignment they face the same way.

refeting to your 2 images if the head is set upright the eagle on yhe reverse is upside down is this correct??


Yes. The two images are the same coin in it's slab - front and back. So you can see the way the orientation works.
