Redfield Morgans - should I, or shouldn't I (Buy Them)

3 Redfield Morgans ..... 86-S, 87-S, and 88-S Hi, Went to the local coin shop the other day and the dealer says, "would you be interested in these?" He proceeded to take out 3 Redfield Morgans. The first one, an 1886 S in the Green Redfield holder. Then, an 1888-S in a Red Redfield Holder. And lastly, an 1897 S in a Red Redfield Holder. All very nice looking Morgans. I thought for sure I had died and gone to Morgan Heaven. I asked him to price them for me and I'd let him know if I could afford

1882 O/S MS60 NGC and 1897 S PL MS63

Nice VAM Logged on the other day, checked my email and there was some mail from my local dealer. He had a list of new stuff! I could not wait for the next day to arrive. I had to wait until after work to visit the coin shop. I arrived and he brought out about 12 new slabbed coins for me to look at. I first noticed the 1897 S PL. The reflective fields caught my eye right away. It turns out it is a VAM 4! The next coin I went for was the 1882 O/S VAM 5. Nice coin, graded MS60 by NGC - I knew ab

Help with GSA soft pack MC and MU cards Morgan CC

Quantity vs Quality/Rarity

Should I buy..... The question... Buy quantity or quality/rarity. I thought about this today as I was looking through some Morgans. There were several common nice dollars to be had....but I thought... should I buy 1881-S dollars, nice and brillant or 1882-S PL dollars, which I can give out as gifts to the neices and nephews... or should I wait and buy low mintage or higher graded slabbed coins? There are so many nice ones to buy....what to do? Help Thanks for reading

Look at this...

What kind of error Morgan is this? Went to the coin shop yesterday, May 2nd. As soon as I got there he pulls out a long box with 'new' stuff all priced out and ready for my preview. I pulled out a nice 1880-S BU Toned Morgan beauty. (I'll post that picture in another article.) Anyway, going through about 20 or 30 coins and from the side of me he slides a coin to me and says take a look. I look at the obverse.. a few neat marks. I turn it over and notice the goodies. Some sort of blockage on th

And the hunt continues

Key date Morgan Dollar - waiting for me Went to my local dealer the other day. He was all smiles. Business is good for him. We chatted for a moment and then said, "I got something to show you." He came back with a NGC Slabbed 1894 S Morgan MS62 with some nice toning. I did not even ask how much. I said to him, "I'll take it." He put it away for me and I am paying it off. I should have it by the end of April. With silver climbing higher and higher I was almost tempted to empty his cases of a

My first time (NGC submission)

I got my coins back I submitted 5 coins to NGC. They arrived on the 15 of Feb. The five coins were shipped back to me on Tuesday 7th of March, the mailman had them at my door thursday March 9th. Wow. I used my 5 free submission coupon and was happy with the service and the grading. I submitted 2 CC Morgans (84 and 82) and 1 83 S Morgan and 2 other silver coins. CC's came back MS64! and the 83 S came back an AU 58. I was so hoping for an MS60, oh well, still a nice coin. Thanks NGC for an ex

What does he have for me today - part 2

Advice - 1893 P Morgan PCGS MS63 Well, went to the shop today, and wow - did he have a coin for me today. An 1893 P Morgan PCGS MS63. I know it is a low mintage key date Morgan - I have one, only it is an XF45 slabbed. My question is - should I pounce on this opportunity or should I pass? I was thinking of selling some duplicate CC dollars to come up with the money. Thoughts - please, advice.... thanks wayne

Local Dealer a real good guy

What does he have for me today.... Anticipation.....as I walk through the coin shop doors...I think to myself, what does he have for me today? I approach the counter, one at which I have visited many times over the past 15 years and drooled over beautiful old U.S coins. I greet him, ask how things are and he replies, "just fine". He leaves for a second to go to his little office and returns with a box of stuff for me to look through. First eyes to see it. Today, oh boy, a nice PCGS 1888-O MS64

Coin bag/bankers bag

Lady who has her fathers old silver dollars in a bankers zip type bag...... I met a man in Taylor City NH, just outside of Province Lake - also known as ParsonField. I was in his little general store buying a soda and a candy bar. The owner, he was in his late 70s then, was ringing up my purchase when I noticed a coinage magazine on the shelf behind him. I struck up a conversation about coins with him and at age 70 he was sharp as a tack. He said, you won't find any 32 s quarters around here o
