    I like that look...on a peace dollar the color just hilights the images to pop.
    I would love to have an entire set in that grade in the look...if that makes sense...

    Me too. I have far too many ugly Peace Dollars. I need to think about starting another set.

    It would, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it jumped to 55-58. The current holder allowed me to score it cheap!

    Haha that's one of the things that's kinda hard when typing, emotions don't quite convey.

    I wasn't mad at all actually, despite what my reply might have sounded like. I was just saying I didn't know that acetone couldn't fix fingerprints if it's been a long time and then telling the OP not to try it because it wouldn't work.

    Sorry if I came across as upset :)

    Hi, fairly new here. These arrived today, but I have a question. They were advertised as BU. They seem a little scratched up to me. Am I off target or are my expectations too high?

    You have 3 nice Morgans yes true they do have some marks....so would you in a bag of 1000 being thrown around at the mint,bank etc.... yes all 3 are MS by my eye.
    Remember these are large coins and a 1000 s in a bag hitting one another you're going to have a few dings.
    Now that you have them go to vam world and learn how to vam a morgan..... and see exactly what you have purchased.
    The more knowlege you have in this hobby the more your passion will grow.
    Nice pick ups.... Paddy

    I showed it to my local coin shop and the girl said, yes, it was a proof. She said sometimes if they need the silver or have to many they will break up the set and dump the "non-silver" in with the regular change. She said she would save them for me at face value.

    This must be the same reason I was able to buy 25 toned Proof Roosevelt dimes as a group for $2.75 - just 11 cents each.
