    Let me see you Morgan :eek: don't be bashful!

    I just got back from the local Antique shop where a dealer had just dropped of his coins. I picked through about 50 mixed dollars (Morgans / Peace Dollars), and I found this beauty for $32

    I feel like a proud parent i swear.
    I imagine there are better looking Morgans out there but for just over $30 im super happy. :goofer:

    I was buying 10 or 20 silver dollars at a time, but with the price going up I'm sticking to quality and not quantity. I still get a silver rush from nice coins like this, and purchased like this will hold me over until the prices come down.

    I took the above photo with a Canon Powershot SD950 12.1 MP Camera, set to Macro, and with the flash off.

    Nice pickup! I always love getting a bargain. Morgans are one of my favorite coin designs of all time. I love them in any grade.

    I just bought this 1878 7TF on ebay a week ago Sunday for $142. I loved the album toning on this and just had to have it.
    It's the first toned Morgan I've ever bought online that looked like the sellers photo when I got it "in hand", in natural room light. Usually when I buy a toned Morgan online, I am a little bit disappointed when I get the coin. So this was a nice change!


  4. wowza i love that gold toning on the reverse :hail:

    1793LargeCent, yes, the coin is really that gold too. It's wild isn't it.
    I was able to buy it under list (got lucky with the bidding).

    By the way ... i love your avatar photo ... what country is that from?
    That is one beautiful coin (great green and copper color).

    Thanks! Got it for a steal too considering how the entire reverse of the coin is carnival toned. In these situations, the coins are usually $400.00+!...But I got this baby for $175.00 ;) It was a pretty good day. If I were to resell it right now, which I would NEVER EVEN THINK about doing because I am in love with this coin, I would most likely get no less than $300.00. :)

    I love that coin man. Yeah Morgans are awesome, actually had a dream that I found one with some rainbow toning within some of the ones i already had. Very nice coin.

    blu62vette, all i can say is WOW!!! A rainbow and a CC -- stunning.

    Hey I have a question about this coin -- What does this coin look like in natural room light or daylight? I have seen some stunning rainbow Morgan photos (esp on eBay) where the coin didnt look as nice (or wild) in hand.
