On December 14, 2007 the number of Morgan Dollar sets in the NGC registry reached 1000. It is amazing to see the number of registered collectors of these huge chunks of silver reach this milestone. For a set requiring 105 coins ( only 3 of which are less than 103 years old ) to gain 1000 followers is quite amazing.
The only set with a higher number of registered sets is Silver Eagles. The Silver Eagle set requires 25 coins ( currently ) and holds no coin over 21 years old.
I?m not knocking the Silver Eagles. They are a beautiful coin and I?m working on a set, however, their real beauty is only because they are based on a coin designed for release in 1916.
Can?t our mint come up with a new design that can capture the eye and the heart of the American numismatist?
Pic is the newest addition to my Morgan set which I haven?t registered yet. I?ve been waiting 2 weeks for delivery of this 1893 MS63 because the seller ?overlooked? my purchase. NICE!!!
