Do you have a local coin shop (LCS) near you or that you go to? I know mine will have a good selection of Morgans to pick through at good prices. I am glad you made some nice purchases. Keep at it!

If you are happy with the coins and the price, that is all that counts.

If you are happy with them you didn't overpay. I like the VAM. I collect Peace Dollar VAMs myself. They look nice. Thanks for showing us..

It's nice to see that one of your coins comes with a provenance. With the exception of coins from a few really big or important collection, provenance for US coins is nonexistent. It is fun to know who owned a coin before it entered your collection. In collecting Roman Republican and Anglo-Saxon coins, provenance can play a big role. Last year I purchased an Aethelred II Penny that can be traced back to the 1800's to the first owned after it was dug up. It also is a plate coin in a Sylloge of Coins of the British Isles from a major collection. It has a fancier Family Tree than I do.

You have allot of coins to choose from. If your going to make a set. My mentor told me don't put all your eggs in one basket. Diversify. He was right. So keep adding to your set. Any coins you like. .That's the secret and if you settle in on any coins you like but the books before the coin. Enjoy.

"Happy to add these two to my collection" is the most important thing. If you know information, please tell us more about Gene L. Henry's Hoard.

Nice pick ups! As far as prices, I'm not too knowledgeable as to what Morgan's go for....
