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.

Texas Numismatic Association Additions to My Morgan Collection

Coins-United States | FortWorthCollector

I was able to add these two nice examples of Morgan dollars to my collection recently at the Texas Numismatic Associations coin show in Arlington, Texas. I usually don’t look specificly for Proof like coins just because it is challenging enough to find nice coins for the regular grade let alone proof like but this one just fell in my lap. I couldn’t pass it up for the price and I think it adds nicely to the set.

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.
