I have a nephew who is a coin collector. I gave him some of the old coins which his grandfather gave me some years back and I could see how happy he was . When I visited him last August , he showed him his collection of coins. Gosh, he need to open a deposit box with the bank to keep all his valuable coins :) He showed me his morgan silver dollars which were minted from 1878 to 1904 . He even gave me a talk on these silver dollars. They were named after its designer , George T. Morgan who designed the obverse and reverse of the coin. The dollar has a finess of .900, giving a total silver content of 0.77344 troy ounces per coin. And he enlightened me that The Morgan Dollar is one of the most popular and widely collected US coins. Wow, the Morgan silver dollars he has with him must be priceless then ! I love chatting with this nephew of mine. He is entertaining and knowledgeable of all the coins he has in in possession.
