BWhite, bummer about the all-fake collection, sorry to see that. I've very recently started collecting Morgan silver dollars, and seem to have picked up a fake myself. I had done some research into the Morgans, but apparently not quite enough when I bought a supposedly 1878-O coin... I now know none were minted in New Orleans until 1879. On the bright side, I only paid $30 for it. It only weighs 23 grams, and has the wrong "sound" to the metal. Very obvious compared to a few others I've picked up. I'm disputing the sale with eBay, but I might just keep it and not let it go back into circulation. It arrived in a bubble pack, and inside it apppeared to be packaged in the original envelope from China, which was addressed to the seller. Should have known the BIN deal was too good to be true, but then I didn't know about the "O" mint issue with 1878 at the time... Also, I expected to find it to be magnetic, but it is not. Possibly has silver content?
