    CC, and all Morgan Dollars, have their mint mark on the reverse side.

    PCGS is the #1 coin rating service. he didni't box those himself, theresfore they are what tey say they are. the numbers on the front represent the coins in their searchable online database.

    ooo ooo ooo, i'm all over that one. i'm gonna pay over a million bux for a 15 dollar coin. umm......maybe not. thats like payin 50 bux for a silver dollar. if you ever cash it you're only gettin a dollar. i guess since i never really got into collecting anything i really can't appreciate it

    you really have no idea what you're talking about. lol

    no one would take a morgan as legal tender. if they did, the guy behind the counter new what it was, pocketed it, and put a $1 from his own wallet in the register.

    while still legal tender- as all coins/dollars will ALWAYS be, hell, i bet if you gave a cashier at walmart a $2 bill or an ike dollar coin, they would be like WTF is this, monopoly money? whats sad, is that they were made up and through the 70's... hardly "old" enough to never know about them.

    Exactly. Specimens like this are a perfect example - $15 CAN turn into over a million.

    thats nice, but most are nearly worth hardly their face value...
