I would have it framed and hang on the wall. Nice display of coins and a great conversation piece.

Think I'd keep it framed ,as-is,
Indeed. Looks like that "Solid Bronze Moon Medal"...the only non-circulating "coin" of the coins...is the same size as the dollars on either side. I'd take it out and plug in a nice/appropriate Morgan plus make a nice tag for it to cover that for the "moon" plus to fit the decor.
Weird, they didn't actually leave out the Morgan. The person who filled the holder could have put only one dollar coin in that slot. The slot is labeled as 1878-1935. Neither the Morgan or the Peace were minted from and till those dates. However, they were both minted during that span. The holder is missing a slot for whichever coin the person filling it decided NOT to holder.
You're right. I didn't even read the title beneath that Peace Dollar. So one must choose between the Morgan or Peace. Now I'm wondering why 1935 was the end date instead of 1921. Anyway, it's a very nice wall display.
What's the deal with the "Moon Medal"?
@Southpawdon. Unless you check every coin, you have no reason to be disappointed in the condition of the coins. Just because the coin company cleaned or whizzed coins to put in those display cases, it doesn't mean every coin they sold was cleaned. Some of what your father bought may be very high grade examples. Learn what you can about grading and try and grade them yourself. a good site to show the grades is: https://www.pcgs.com/photograde
Edit. If your father bought them a while ago he may have possibly got some good bargains. For example, I have a 1968 Blue Book showing that dealers paid less than $5.00 for Bust Half Dollars dated 1807-34.(Graded Good). Even if they sold them for twice that amount, what would you pay today?
I believe that it's an inexpensive medal issued by the mint to commemorate the Apollo moon landing. So an example of commemoratives.
@1stSgt22 i would leave it be. its cool. good luck to ta sir
Dumb question. Of course, it should be 1935. Final year for the Peace Dollar.
Sorry Jeff, what's your question?
I was wondering why the dates say 1878-1935 when the Morgan stopped in 1921. Then, of course, I realized that the Peace dollar went on till 1935. Hahaha. Corrected myself.
Littleton has always sold nice coins as far as I know. They tended to price high, but their coins were problem free from what I have seen. If others disagree, I'd like to know it.
I would think this set came from somewhere else.
Strangely, I had the same thought.
