Re: How Long Have You Collected our Beloved Morgan Dollars ???

Started buying Morgans in 2003 with a GSA 84CC as the 1st. Then purchased about 350 of them over the next 5 years, primarily EBAY. With the many dupes, had a 90+% collection in slabs, these were the best, 95+% raw in my Dansco album with about 25% broken out of slabs, and 90% in a LOC album, which w...

Re: Dents in coins

Agree with the details grade, been cleaned and those dents are too obvious. However as mentioned, they are key dates and still a lot of design on the coins. Enjoy

Re: OT Toning Help/Opinion

Looks like some sort of napkin window sill toning. Does not enhance the coins and probably hiding something.

Re: 1878 P Rev 78 Vam 83

Here's 2 close-up photos reflecting the raised lines on the left side of the wreath's leaves. Guess polishing the working die scratched these lines somehow into the field. Although this Vam has polished Eagle wings on both sides, the breast feathers look very detailed and maybe reworked. P1040572 (4...

Re: 1878 cc vam 9

Agree 61 or 62 seems appropriate grade from photos. From what I've seen, TPGs appear to be lenient on CC Morgans, so probably will get a 62.

1878 P Rev 78 Vam 83

I was looking at my Morgan collection yesterday and saw something on the Vam 83 reverse I never noticed before. On the right side wreath, 3rd leaf cluster from top, there were 2 raised die scratches on top of the wreath's leaves, mimicking the lower 2 leaves, like an outline of the leaves or an inve...

Re: 1888 S VAM 13 - Rev Gouges

Dennis,

Thanks for the feedback. I was assuming $300 - $325 range, so no real premium over recent auction prices. Blast white, strong strike, but not proof like. Guess the VAM may just help to market to buyers and sell when that day comes.

1888 S VAM 13 - Rev Gouges

Hi, is there any premium to this VAM. In an older/white ANACS slab MS62. Realize this year has appreciated nicely over the years and wonder if this VAM adds any premium. Thanks for your time and assistance. Great website for Vammers. Use it all the time and been cataloging my VAMs recently while I w...
