Good Morning Gentle Readers,
The House Blond picked them up from the counter and excitedly asked.....
What country are these big heavy coins from?
Found them when cleaning a closet shelf. It's possible that the crazy woman who once lived here hid them there.
The three 1921 Morgans are worth about $15.00-$20.00 apiece and the nice 1922 Peace Dollar worth maybe $30.00-$40.00. Many of the uncirculated 1921 Morgan Silver Dollars were melted down to make 1922 Peace Dollars.
Silver dollars have a certain intrinsic value which imparts a characteristic heft that is missing from modern coinage. Drop a Morgan on a tile floor and you hear a distinctive ring rather than a dull thud. The coins are Americana. Survivors. The weight of one in your hand allows you to briefly touch another era that long ago moved on.
