Silver Dollar Blog - Morgan & Peace Silver Dollar Book

Mar 14, 2012

If you ever want to purchase a book that covers every aspect of the Morgan and Peace Dollar this is the book! The Comprehensive Catalogue and Encyclopedia of U.S. Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars. This book goes into detail about the background of the silver dollar. Detail surrounding the minting process, historical letters and descriptions of 1000 errors/varieties. Cleaning, photographing and how to detect counterfeits. I think they covered every topic imaginable in a guide to Morgan and Peace Dollars!

You can break this book down into four parts. First the book talks about the background of the silver dollar. Laws which affected when and how many coins could be produced, minting operations of the time. The second part concentrates on the design of the Morgan Dollar. Goes into detail about die varieties. Also it talks about the General Services Administration Carson City Dollar Sales. The third section of this book goes into the design development, die variety listings for the Peace dollar. Section four talks  about daily working procedures and how they handled silver dollars. It also covers what to look for in a counterfeit coins, grading and cleaning.  And how to photograph these tricky coins. I also wrote and article on How to Photograph your Morgan Dollars you  might want to take a look at!

Out of all the coin books I own this is by far my favorite! It doesn't just show an 1878 Silver Dollar with facts. It goes into detail where that coin was minted, how it was minted, what errors were produced, who handled the coin all the way up to bagging the silver dollars. A story in detail from beginning to end about the Morgan and Peace Silver Dollar!
