Morgan Dollars part 2

Coins | user_22476

Hi guys, we are just going to go over the history of the morgan dollars. So let's dive right in. George Thomas Morgan was the person who designed the dollar. He was the Chief Engraver from 1917-1925. And also designed the reverse of the Colombian half-dollar. For the face of the Morgan dollar, he model Anna Willess Williams who was a school teacher. Morgan even put his initials on both the obverse and reverse of the coin. There were over 657 million Morgan dollars minted between 1878-1921. Sadly, a lot of them were melted thanks to the Pittman act in 1918 and the Silver Act in 1942. The rarest of these coins was the 1893 S. This coin only had about 100,000 minted and go anywhere from $1900 to $1,250,000! Another cool feature of the Morgan dollar was that in 1878 there were either 7 or 8 feathers from the " buzzard bird". There are also new Morgan 2021 coins that I have a few of. But that's all I have for you today can't wait to see you soon! Bibliography: https://www.usgoldbureau.com/news/history-of-morgan-silver-dollars 2022 red book

Coins and You! Why do you collect?

Coins | coinfodder

Some may say this article is beating a dead horse, a bad record, or whatever metaphor you use to describe repeating things. But every now and then, your job manager (or consultant) asks you to reconsider your purpose in a company. Do the same with your collecting habits too. Why do I collect coins? So I can......so I can......collect old pieces of our nations history!

No More Points As Of Today January 9 ,2023

Coins | Mike

Hi every one. Well we asked and the ANA agreed that we collect coins not points.This to me is an historic day. For years points were causing bad blogs and contest. That's how we were ranked. No more . As I said in that blog we are all equal. No one is first or second. This did not happen overnight. The A.N.A. had there reason for them. And take my word it probably worked great in the beginning. It was to get collectors to get active and participate. To write blogs and add to there collections. After a while this changed. A person was following over 6500 other collectors I did not make that up. I will not put his number here. The abuse had started.Some complaints were filed. But they still believed in it. Then at some point no pun intended that changed. It was no longer a site of blogs but a site of who's first. I had called the A.N.A and discussed it with a friend. He agreed but at that time years ago it wasn't going to happen. This game of catch me if you can started a series of low quality blogs. Wrong information and people stopped writing them. Abuse of the site was starting. And the site was on the wrong road. Now that's all behind us and I want to thank the A.NA for there cooperation!. It was great that we could voice our opinion and they would listen. Im thrilled that's its over. Now I hope those who left because of the point game come back and share there knowledge of this great hobby! I myself will start writing again. Its been a while for me and I have been eager to get back to one or two a week. I think that would be a good number. One a week with all the active bloggers would be great.Better quality blogs and more than that learning again. Im still learning after thirty years. I enjoy reading them and the comments. So today we start a new site. One were all are equal! We are collector's with a passion for this hobby. Lets make it the best site. One the A.N.A and us can be proud of!! Again I thank all of us who voiced our opinion. And again thank the A.N.A for working with us. There is no better place!. Good luck to all!!Mike
