So I'm rummaging through a closet and I find my late father's coin collection. There's a bunch of silver dollars from the early 1900's, a bunch of WWII era Japanese money. Japanese Pesos?

About 40 coins in total and 14 notes.

After 5 minutes of research, I know these are Morgan Dollars. I know nothing of coin collecting. :lol:

The coins are scanned in the same order, the top scan showing tails, the bottom scan showing the respective heads.

What do y'all think?

Good idea, Nathan!!! Las Vegas would be fun too! But if we go to Tahiti, you all have to wear grass skirts, ok? :lol:

I think the one dated 1900 may be worth a few hundred dollars! There's an outside chance it may be a rare type of Morgan Dollar because of the "O over CC" mark; these kinds of silver dollars can fetch tens of thousands of dollars; highly unlikely IMO, but I'm getting it appraised.

The others are worth between 40 and 100 dollars each. Not a bad haul! :lol: Just kidding, I'd never sell them (for sentimental reasons.) They belonged to my deceased father; he was a coin enthusiast in the 1950's.
