It pains us to see slabs like this proclaiming MS66 Superb Gem status. A Morgan dollar with such a designation is breath-taking and can sell for hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Our compliments to this auction house for noting that the coin is cleaned. (It also appears scratched.)
We value auction houses like this that identify flaws in over-graded coins, but we recommend grouping such coins into one miscellaneous lot–“silver mix”–rather than showcasing them with three or more photos.</font?

It is grading firms such as this abomination that have resulted in eBay finally taking a stand! How shamful to grade a coin in this condition MS66.
Absolutely. I don’t believe slabs like this should be given the status of “lot” because they are, essentially, silver melt. Thank you, Dick.
Beautiful blog about rare coins or collectible coins. It is very informative and I learned lot about rare coins. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for visiting us, and we appreciate your comment!
did you know in 2012 a penny cost 5 cents to make and a nickel cost a whole dime to make. So they r gonna start mkanig coins out of cheeper metals so coins from even the 70 s or 80 s will be worth more.
