I would like to do a poll. Can everyone share their opinion on DMPL Morgan Dollars and if you prefer them over the blast white ones?7 years ago
DMPL Morgan Dollars. Yes or No
One of our fellow club members only collects the DMPL's to the point of excluding everything else. To me there is so much more to collecting than that what about the history and poilitics of the time. So many collectors, true collectors know more history and are better informed than the focused collector.7 years ago
I actually like toned Morgan dollars over DMPL and blast white. The DMPL dollars are too much like actual proof coins that unless you all your Morgan dollars looking like that they would never match the others that are blast white. In both instances any marks on Liberty's cheek or in the fields are easily distracting but, on nicely natural toned Morgans those marks are much less noticeable and to me have a lot more character.
I would opine that the silver dollar is probably the backbone of affluent collectors with a large diversity of varieties. High tactile quality is nice in the fingers.7 years ago
Proof-like Morgan Dollars are always nice, I don't own any, however I do own a proof-like Seated Liberty Quarter! The coin is from an NGC holder as MS61 PL... Its interesting to note that the obverse and reverse show die rust, especially the reverse.

I love the reflectivity of the Proof-Like Morgans (I own one-1879-S NGC MS-63PL)
