Hello, I recently came across a stash of american dollars of various dates they are owned by a lady trying to sell them off for some reason. So far I bought three from her 1921d 1921s and 1885 just wondering what are some dates to watch for that could be good and how about the ones I bought. I paid thirty dollars for the three and could get the rest for about ten to fifteen bucks a piece and they're all in about the same condition, light wear no major scratches. input would be great, thanks

This. Any decent Morgan is worth that much these days.

Now, for the fun part.

How much do you know about Morgan VAM's?

Especially considering that you're probably talking Canadian Dollars and we're talking US Dollars, it's all the better a deal. Morgans are worth $CAD10.75 just in metal content, and more at retail even as culls. This is an excellent investment, and you never know what you'll find among them for interesting VAM's. Please post a complete list; I'll help you figure out if there's anything of not among them.

chumpchange, Welcome to the forum, buy them all if she did not sell them already. How long have you been collecting coins?What do you collect?Also do not let the world of Vams throw you, this is a totally different world of collecting Morgan and Peace dollars and this site will be a big help, after you buy all of those coins,LOL,
be well, Mike...

hello people sorry I could not answer your questions right away as I am stuck at work, After all the advice though I did send my wife to get the rest of the coins, I wont be home till saturday so I wont know what she got for me till then I do know that she bought ten different coins(silver dollars). To answer morgans dad I collect everything I can, Like a packrat, If shines I'll pack it away, Although my collection is mostly older canadian coins(nickels and pennies)and American errors. I also spent 8 years in germany so I have quite a few world coins but I really know nothing about them. Saturday night I will try to post pics for the first time to show what I aquired, till then I can only dream that one is worth a million dollars and I wont have to go back to work. Thanks for all the help...
