Re: 100% Authentic Genuine Replica Imitation Morgan Dollar...

This is a very genuine, low-grade, New Orleans Mint struck Morgan Dollar.

Re: Potential new contemporary counterfeit Morgan Dollars - requesting advice

Not as collectible. Perhaps I should have said not as popular or not as widely collected. I suspected as much, and was only trying to be cute . :D I would love to see the 1921 Morgan from hand-cut dies.

Since then, and for the last year I have set these aside to study an...
