Market Irregularity

Coins-United States | Long Beard

Scrolling the internet recently for additions to add to a collection, looking at the modern United States commemoratives, an oddity appears which seems to break from the traditional values within the market place. No matter the denomination or series, the values range from low to high with many in between create a somewhat steady upward graph plot. Yet not the modern commemoratives. The subject of this weeks blog. Enjoy!

GSA Morgan Dollars

Coins-United States | thatcoinguy

When Morgan Dollars we're still in circulation (late 19th and early 20th centuries), they were actually not very popular! The public didn't like them, so many Morgan Dollar bags went into banks storage systems. Until the 1970s. The treasury ran an audit, and the long forgotten Morgan Dollars were uncovered. Soon, the General Services Administration (GSA) took hold of the project to get the Morgan Dollars out. Before the treasury found this hoard, the 1903-O Morgan Dollar was very rare. But now, it is very common in high grades. The hype built up, and soon there was lines of people with wheelbarrows trying to get ahold of a few bags worth of dollars. But after the sudden increase in demand, the lines slowly stopped, and the GSA still had a lot of Morgans (most of which were the Carson City kind) to get rid of.

Greetings members of the ANA! I've been pretty busy this weekend, but I was able to set aside enough time to put together my weekly blog (let's see how long I can keep it up). As I mentioned in last week's blog, most of the articles will be related to a recent pickup. The title will have this week's discussion, and in parentheses. I'll also be making titles in bold for each paragraph, because some of my blogs will be really long ;)
