  1. Yes indeed! Thanks for posting that. It's a beautiful piece.
  2. While there are many that I love and collect, Morgans are my favorite.
  3. Excellent Rainbow! They don't come any nicer than that. Thanks for sharing.

    $1 hoard

    Hard to tell from the scan and because of the toning but I would think better than MS-60. Maybe 63? Glad to see you were able to score so many Silver Dollars at once. Sometimes it pays to be in the right place at the right time.
  5. OMG! I take it this is a raw coin.
  6. Also, I realize that the VAM is probably without interest...what VAM does it appear? The "O" appears high and there doesn't appear to be any doubling of and of the date digits. I would say it's a Vam-4. Vamworld.com 1898-O Vam 4 Compared to yours: Looks very similar. The provenance of these items precedes all the recent crap coming from China. Whew! I was afraid the Chinese were getting Way Too good at it.
  7. Then we'd have Glow-in-the-Dark counterfeit coins.
  8. I can make out the date at 1800. No idea yet on the other.
  9. For a 66, I was expecting a much cleaner coin. Seems to be a lot of scratches and ticks. Is on this Carson City grading curve? Don't get me wrong....it's a beautiful Morgan, but a 66? Set me straight. (Lord knows I need it.)
  10. A machinist with too much time on his hands?
  11. Being my Grandmother was blind for the last 34 years of her life, I have no problem with making it easier for the blind to tell which denomination is which. Though she lived alone for many years, a family member always had to be with her when she was shopping and pull out the correct bills. I can't imagine what a blind person, who is completely alone, goes through. This is something that should have be done YEARS ago by the BEP. It is an easy fix and will make life better for those without sight.
  12. I like spending the Ike Dollars. Now thats a coin that turns heads. I go to a store that gets a couple every few weeks and thay always save them for me. I use them as tips or, if I'm so lucky, at the Casinos. Using an Ike at the BlackJack tables will really get some stares. Some dealers will fight over them. Others want to refuse them thinking its a token from another casino. Some pay no mind. The players ask to see them. Something fun always happens when you throw one on the table. As big and bulky as a Morgan Silver Dollar, you won't mistake them for anything else.
  13. I like your idea, BUT lotteries are illegal. If LOTTERY is in the name...it's a lottery, which means it's gambling, which means it's illegal. It's a game of chance...which means it's gambling, which means it's illegal. Gambling in the State of California is legal only by the state and the Indians. Small time raffles done for/by charities can get away with it but doing it as a business is a big no-no. California does not like competition taking peoples money and as soon as they get a whiff of it, I guarantee you'll be hearing from Schwarzenegger and not in a nice way. I don't mean to rain o
  14. Yes. The sunlight can cause coins to sprout legs. They then runaway and are never seen or heard from again. At least not by you. Congrats on your newp!

    change find

    Probably because War Nickels are very easy to spot. Nice catch Corina.
  16. That one is pretty obvious. I can't imagine how the seller missed it. That was one heck of a Die Clash. Here's how the two sides line up:
  17. I wouldn't buy it. It's a Liberty Dollar and not US currency. As far as being an investment, I don't see it increasing in value anytime soon. Here's some more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_Dollar
  18. I get Grey Sheets from a friend in AZ. They're usually a month or two out but close enough.
  19. There's one born every minute. Sometimes two.
  20. One of the managers where I work, asked my opinion on how much a coin he bought was worth. This is what he showed he: I was sorry I had to give him the bad news. Fortunantly he was only out $5. BTW. That's a great site. Thanks for posting it.
  21. And the winner is: Dustin43160! Congratulations!!! And thanks to jtryka for the Give-Away and the lessons in history.
