I was inspired when I was on Twitter yesterday. Two beautiful photos of 1881-S Morgan dollars were posted. As a longtime Morgan dollar fan, I know this particular coin is one of the most attractive in the set. Strike is good, eye appeal is usually high. Many are available in Mint State. It's not an expensive rarity. It's an old fashioned silver dollar, over 130 years old.
Rare presentation set awarded/issued by President Eisenhower during his August 26 - September 7, 1959 visit to Germany, France and England.Sharing my on-going research. This is a complete/intact President Eisenhower's 1959 presentation set (I posted a picture at my blog before). This time I have additional National Archives and Records Administration findings in a video:1. Department of State partially funded the presentation sets2. Memo which identifies individuals who received the presentation set from President Eisenhower in Paris, France.3. Memo to Ann Whitman (Eisenhowerâ€™s personal secretary) from White House Office staff member suggesting the use of the 48-star place card and envelope with the "coin" (thus forming the presentation set).click this --->>> (Video that I made)
