Re: Mirror Mirror Part 3

Regarding Varslab vs VSS = I used to send raw Morgans for attrib but not having a grade seemed counterproductive. I personally think getting a coin graded then attrib on holder VSS makes more sense times 2x. Some would say if your not selling then it doesnt matter but knowing and having a grade help...

Non Graded but self ATTRIB fOR Sales

Absolutely amazing how many Morgans are (attrib by owner) ungraded and for sale via Fleabay. Seems dealers and individuals have becomemore proficient at attributing varieties the last several yrs. This is a testiment to the value and following of VW2 Even though most do not carry premiums, its great...

Beating to a Different Drum LOL

Even when a youg boy, i was super independant and had opinions/goals outside the normal box My folks kinda liked my direction but warned me to always stay within the law and within a so called straight line. This brings me to collecting Morgans. I have always loved buying bulk Morgans on the cheap. ...

9-27 Night trade- Metals continue to get slammed, with no breaks, Gold $1625 -Silver $18.30 David Morgan predicted this further slide before we see any relief He envisions much better pricing into year end with a real large move by 2023 yr end, so 1 yr plus Really sucks to see your investment losing...

Re: F/u on JB's 91-O 1A2 purchase...

The 91- 0 vam 1A Die stages 1-4 is a bit tough to value, and IMHO Vam 3A1 & 3a2 Especially, as POPS are low & many are details grade. All these have fallen off the cliff priceways and super undervalued IMHO. I am a total fan of these. especially 3A1 & 3a2 Like JB states, au58 is about end of line or...

Re: Newp from Heritage VAM sale

Was wondering, did heirs break up Cail Collection ? Like many others ? I was amazed of the scope of the collection, but not by Lloyds personality, but admit to only meeting him at a show after he was pretty sick, so Logan told me. That told me a bunch from which many said he was a super individual e...

Re: NEW R-7 Retained Cud 1921 $ with photos

Way cool to see this dandy screw up !!!! Just thinking how messed up Mint workers were way back 100+ yrs ago, for there to be thousands of errors within one denomination. The lack of quality controls definately led Morgan Dollars to forefront of Errors/ Vams as we know them today I cant imagine what...

O/T Central Banks & Huge Metals have Stolen Show

Recently here in Sept Gold/Silver/metals seemed to get a reprieve from falling pricing, with silver hitting a tad over $20 oz. Then central banks etc crush the mkts by selling more short paper in futures, along with dollar & interest rate hikes, the poor metals mkts didnt stand a chance. With cheap ...

I personally never got the lowball craze thing, but did see validity, say to super Rainbo toned Morgans. All this stuff is why collecting morgans is so cool with varied interest . IMHO however, way to crazy money spent on such niche Morgans, and the rainbo thing really got outta hand price ways. i s...

Re: 1899 O VAM 30 with clashing?

Getting hooked on clashed Morgans is as good as loving meat & potatoes for dinner.
So exciting to view various dates & MM which super bold clashings that really make coin
stand out from typical strikes. Add to that the bold die cracks on many and you have a
superior looking coin.

Personally, I am a clasher & die break junkie !!

It seems Heritage has largest client base known in industry, which lends to maximum exposure A crazy high price for a individual coin is pretty common nowadays at these auctions, and theres no way to figure why in most cases.
