The History of The Morgan Silver Dollar Part 2

Coins | s12k3

Hey Guys! It seemed like you enjoyed the last part of the Morgan Silver Dollars, so I decided I will do another. In the early 1960s, a large quantity of uncirculated Morgan dollars in their original bags were discovered in the Treasury vaults, including issues once thought rare. Individuals began purchasing large quantities of the pieces at face value and then removed them from circulation through hoarding, and eventually the Treasury stopped exchanging silver certificates for silver coins.I wish I could get Silver Dollars for face value! Beginning in the 1970s, the Treasury conducted a sale of silver dollars minted at the Carson City Mint through the General Services Administration (GSA (Picture attached below)). All of the Carson City mint coins are key dates and worth more than regular coins even in bad condition.

One CC, two CC

Nice day for downtown today, first time in a while. Delicious Oktoberfest lunch, served by my favorite waiter. And of course, a visit to the coin shop.

What is it?

Good trip downtown yesterday. Stopped at the coin shop after admiring the many lovely Morgan dollars in their window. After seeing so many Mint State coins, I saw something different in the shop.

Coins stories and bad deals

Coins-United States | Prospector

Ronald Reagan, RIP once stated the most dangerous words he ever heard were, "We're from the Government and we are here to help you." Given that statement whether or not these following writings are factual are unknown except for the one labeled bad deal,since it happened to me. A guy I know told me that he was allegedly carrying 100 authentic Morgan Silver Dollars on him and had gotten arrested by the Police (he was always getting in trouble). Upon returning this guys accouterments they allegedly handed him a $100 Federal Reserve Note.

Window of beauty

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Yesterday during my downtown trip, I stopped at the coin shop. I've already commented on the lovely sets I saw, but there was so much more to admire and enjoy. Another window held a selection of Morgan silver dollars, all mint state, all beautiful. There were many San Francisco issues--of course there were two 1881-S dollars--and a few New Orleans coins that looked pristine and glowing.

The best set ever

Coins-United States | CoinLady

There was a time when I'd attend the FUN show every year. I always enjoyed going. I have often said that it's worth a trip to a major show to see exhibits, sets, and rarities that the average collector doesn't see every day.

High demand

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Once upon a time, there was a collector who loved Morgan dollars. She spent much time building her set, picking out beautiful and choice coins with a minimum of bagmarks and a maximum of eye appeal. Over the years, she had every coin except the 1895, 1889-CC and 1893-S.
