Thanks, Jack - excellent post as always.
And those "MS65" and "MS66" Morgans... o_O
I have better looking coins sitting in a shoebox.
~5 years ago I sold off my other coins (not a huge collection by any stretch) to just concentrate on Morgans. I was quite taken by the coin.
It was Morgans for a few years. Lately it has been late 18th/early 19th century US coins. But really just about anything with silver or gold,...
I just finished the second Whitman cent book (1941-1974), still working on Book 1. A few cents are going to be painful to buy, the 1909-S...
I chose MS64 just for the bag marks. A few less and it would be a 65. Nice luster and detail.

History. I love history - I've owned Roman rings and coins, and even a leaf from a fresco that my mother wears around her neck. My wife wears an...

66 here - though 65 wouldn't surprise me. Lack of "wow" factor for me.
66 is my guess.
I bought an old Whitman Jefferson nickel book filled - it only went up to 1949-D with the third page filled out by the original owner until...
