A very worn 1900-O dollar

I received a very nice comment today on my ramblings of yesterday (1/30/06). So I thought I'd write a little more, to explain why I love Morgan dollars.

My dad saved some dollar coins, mostly Peace dollars, but one Morgan dollar. The one he saved is a 1900-O, and very worn. When I was a kid (about 7 or 8 I suppose) I loved to go in to his chest drawer where he kept them, and just hold it. When you're that young, I guess I loved the heft of it, Morgan & Peace dollars are not small or light coins. Anyway, many years later, my mom let my brother and me divide up the coins, and I got to keep the Morgan.

I suppose some Morgan collectors would laugh their heads off wondering why I would keep such a worn coin, but I like it, and think of my dad everytime I look at it. :-)

I took some pics of it with my digital cam, and am going to try to post them here.

Thanks for letting me write.
