That's a great story......
I like to buy morgans, graded, ungraded, circulated until the rim is gone, cleaned, rim dings and I even have one thats bent.
The fact is that I just love having them, looking at them and showing them to people.
It's a lot of fun to give a cleaned 1889-o to someone who really isn't in to coins. You get to see that spark that got you started into this. I buy silver eagles in holders for the kids around this time of year. Not an expensive gift but one that in some will provide an interest in a lifelong passion.
AND HEY, EVERYONE LIKES TO GET MONEY AS A GIFT.
