Thanks to all copper aficionados and type collectors who made the Eighth Annual JDRC Collectors Appreciation Sale a success. We sold more coins in this event than in any previous two month period. Coin collecting appears to be alive and well. I encourage you to enjoy your pursuit of coins and the related literature. Enjoy and be happy that you are involved in such an engrossing activity.
Two very special Dollars from my personal collection.
*1893 S Morgan dollar, NGC AU-58. This outstanding coin features steel-gray surfaces with deeper charcoal highlights in the protected areas. It was lightly circulated yet shows very few marks. Dreams are made of coins that look like this one. This issue represents the lowest regular mintage (100,000) in the series. Most numismatists would agree that the 1893 S is the most important key coin in the Morgan dollar series.
Ex JMD Collection. $42,500.
*1934 S Peace Dollar, PCGS MS-65+, CAC. A fabulous coin for a world class Peace Dollar set. The strike is remarkably sharp. The blast white luster jumps off the surfaces. It takes great effort to find the few trivial marks on the satiny fields. Monster quality. EX JMD Collection. $14,700.
