If you think your a Morgan Silver Dollar collector and you don't have this book then your NOT a Morgan Silver Dollar collector. Much more than just a book on Morgans, this is a true reference piece that you will refer to again and again. A bible of Morgan Silver Dollars if you will. I find myself refering back to this book not only for new information but also to verify details I have found elsewhere.

Very well written, very comprehensive, very well organized. A natural flow through to the book from the history of dollars to a detailed analysis of each date and mint. Highly recommended.

An excellent publication in terms of breadth of coverage from both a historical and a collector's standpoint. With the help of this book, one could almost become an instant expert in the field. As for myself, however, I'm content to have learned enough to establish reasonable goals (in terms of condition, availability and cost) for date & mint selections when acquiring companion pieces for my 1884-CC Morgon Silver Dollar.

Just getting started collecting Morgan Dollars and I can't begin to tell you what a treasure this book has been. Every year and every variation is given it's own separate page with all the info you need to know...things to look for, variances, etc. A GREAT book if you're just getting started.

The book has a lot of good background information about Morgan coins from a history point of view. The pricing is very out of date with the current market valuation. If you're looking for a history book, which I wasn't, it meets the test.

The author takes each year that Morgan dollars were made and gives two pages of history about Morgan dollars, rare coins, and what was happening in the world at that time. This is followed up by the population, grades and values for coins from each mint that year. This format is followed from 1878 to 1921. Prior to this section of the guide you'll find over 100 pages of fascinating history of silver dollars in general, the mints and minting processes, and how to grade the coins. Quite a wealth of information that will have you dreaming of those "lost" bags of CC mint coins lying undisturbed and forgotten in bank vaults years ago.
