Philadelphia World’s Fair of Money Morgan Dollar Adds

Coins-United States | FortWorthCollector

I set out for Philadelphia this August with a very specific mission to find a Proof Morgan Dollar to add to my collection. My thinking was since it would be a large east coast show that this would be the best time and place to go looking. I thought it would be a piece of cake to find a lot of examples and narrow them down to a few nice specimens in my price range and pick. As it would turn out the easy part was narrowing them down not finding them. When I could find them they where either too toned & rough for my taste or too high a grade & price. As luck would have it though my regular dealer had brought a beautiful 1904 PR-64 that is just amazing. It does have a slight golden brown tone but nothing that distracts from its surface and I couldn’t be more happy to add it to my collection even though I did end up spending a little more than I had planned. I would have loved to have seen some more coins that matched my price range and taste but all an all it was a wonderful hunt. I was also able to add a beautiful 1881-O MS-64 to my set so it is shaping up nicely.

$2.50 Gold Indian set

Coins | FortWorthCollector

I have just recently decided to start a set of $2.50 Gold Indians. It is a short run of 15 coins with only one expensive key date. I think it will be a fun and rewarding short term goal set. Well short term if you define it as a couple of years but definitely a lot less time than it will take to finish my Morgan Dollar set. I have posted pictures of my first coin for the set below.

New Additions to My Morgan Dollar Set

National Money Show | FortWorthCollector

This year the National Money Show was held at the Irving convention center in Irving, Texas. Since the National Money Show was being held in my neck of the woods I decided to take friday off and see how much trouble I could get into. I was able to add an 1878 7/8TF Weak VAM-41A, 1884, and 1890 to my collection. See the pictures below or visit my updated set on my profile.

New additions to my Morgan Dollar Set

Coins-United States | FortWorthCollector

The ANA World’s Fair of Money in Denver was very kind this last year to my Morgan Dollar collection. I was able to add 5 new coins to the set. As most of you know my main goal was to pick up an 1893-S as it is one of the rarest coins of the set in any grade. I am very pleased with the one I was able to obtain that was in my price range. I was also able to acquire a nice 1899 Mirco O which I have had a hard time finding in my local area in nice grades. The 1901-O, 1904 & 1921-S I was able to get in mint state grade that fit my budget. I hope everyone enjoys the photos and coins. Also I would like to mention that for Christmas I received a new DSLR camera so I hope that I will be able to share even better looking photos in the future.
