Company has released Michael “Miles” Standish’s new 160-page
hardcover book, Morgan Dollar: America’s Love Affair With A
The vice president and senior grader at Professional Coin Grading
Service delivers in his book a coin-by-coin study of the Morgan
silver dollar series, struck from 1878 through 1904, and in 1921.
The book features recollections of veteran silver dollar dealer John
B. Love, and is illustrated with high-resolution photographs of the
Coronet Collection. The collection is ranked in the PCGS Set Registry as the “Number One Finest
Morgan Dollar Set of All Time.”
Information incorporated into the reference includes certified coin
populations, retail prices in multiple grades, and other date for
collectors, investors and students of American history.
Chapters are devoted to American history during the years the Morgan
dollar was issued; the evolution of the coin’s designs; a market study
going back to 1946; a year-by-year analysis of the series, including
issues struck at the Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City, Denver
and San Francisco Mints for circulation, as well as Proof Morgan dollars.
The book addresses the key rarities, including the 1893-S and Proof
1895 issues. Attention is also given to Mint State coins that exhibit
Prooflike or deep-mirror Prooflike surfaces.
The book can be borrowed through the American Numismatic Association’s Dwight N.
Manley Numismatic Library as a benefit of ANA membership.
Collectors may purchase a copy of the book from booksellers
nationwide, or directly from Whitman for $29.95 online.
