No disrespect to you, but what do you mean "picked it raw" ? It is slabbed and attributed. Glad to see you are here again.

Re: Were silver dollars "as good as gold?"

I'd say under ordinary circumstances, yes, but it's not that clear cut. If you spent a 5 dollar gold piece, you'd almost certainly get some or all your change in silver.

Re: Were silver dollars "as good as gold?"

Re: 82P NEED some HELP PLZ!!

It's out of place in the variety it's listed for... What we have here is the Pre-D2 listing...currently VAM 1 or 1C, depending on the d...
