Re: 1888-S Morgan Dollar Die Study

I find your die charts very helpful, and I thank you for you research.
I hope some day you will render an opinion on the 1904-O VAMs 29 and 47 reverse dies.

Nice coin, nice Photos.
My series has a hat full of 11 degree rotations.

This is why I, as a Morgan aficionado, keep an open mind about Peace dollars.

With all respect, I hope you have considered Verdi-Care and/or Coin Care for that business under the chin.

Re: A Time Capsule of Prices

Prior to Treasury sales, the 1904-O was considered a scarce and pricey coin. As an engineering student, I signed up for silver smithing classes when the Hunt brothers were driving silver towards $50. And I recall selling a stack of gold American Eagles when the purchase price was $200/oz, to pay a d...

Re: LVA

John, as much as I too would like for Leroy to view a few of my coins, that is not what is important.
I think you summed up the situation very well, and have my complete support.
Prayers for Leroy and Marilyn.

Re: Anyone know what this is?

It appears to be a Colonial Mexican coin.
Value is 4 Reals.
Minted 1542-1555 under Carlos I.
I am not familiar with the G-M mint mark.

Re: Values of our Vams in General

I may not soon recover the investments I put into VAMs, but the fun and the learning experience is worth a million dollars. Special thanks to Alan, JR, JB and so many others that have given me their time and wisdom. And who knows, if the market turns, my '04-O reference set may someday be worth some...

Re: Morgan & Vam Sales- U.S. GOLD COINS

My humble opinion only, Morganman, but I think the coins you are offering (especially the gold) are a more attractive investment than than paper promises.
I'm in agreement with you on this one.

Re: Gold/Silver Ratio

And you dare not identify it and assail it.
You've called me an anti-semite. The only arrow left in your quiver is to call me a pedophile.
If you want to discuss my meme, post it and criticize it.
But you won't.
Because it is true.
And it isn't anti-semitic, it is anti Central Banker.

And you refuse to explain your self.

Re: Acetone geyser.. PSA

My comments will be mainly directed to other than Morgans, simply because this is where you should experiment and learn. Historical restoration can be either rewarding or tragic. There is little room for error. In addition to the coins, I have restored vintage British motorcycles and Museum collecti...

$1 is the max value by law for a silver coin
$50 is the max value by law for a gold coin"

So... If the "government" requires you to turn in your gold and silver Eagles, how much compensation do you think you will get?
