    Hello New Friends!

    Born and raised in Los Angeles, a lifelong beach bum, surfer, volleyballer and ocean swimmer. I recently authored/published a beautifully illustrated children's book, it's for sale on Amazon.com. Been collecting Morgans since '76 and have recently checked on my collection in the safety deposit box. I have many uncirculated Morgans, many toned, MS65+ by my own eyes, never graded by PCGS or NGC, just the coin dealer's grading back in the 70's. What a surprise it was to break out the collection and see how coin collecting has changed! I've been out of the loop for 30+ years and hoping that my online research and being on these forums will enlighten me further. I have my B&L stereo zoom microscope to magnify the VAM search on all my coins. There's many, so this could take a year to catalogue, when time and inspiration allow :D Amazing that I use to buy coins with the money I'd make babysitting or delivering papers. So hello and thank you to all!

    Welcome to the neighborhood, Anthony!

    I won't hold it against you because you live on the wrong coast, and I'd love to see photos of some of your Morgans.

    Here are three, in your honor, that are "serving a life sentence".
