    A 1923 dollar would be a peace dollar. the morgans ended in 1921. ss

    If it's in "about good condition"

    it's only worth a little more than spot price on silver,

    "about good" is pretty worn out, and has no collector value (especially) on common date/mint pieces,

    I'd say more like $6 / $7 tops - (you can buy uncirculated pieces of that yr for $20).

    still a nice bonus for a club hunt though!

    It's better than about good, sharp edges, no appreciable wear, just a scratch or two and some light staining. JIM

    Re: 1923 Morgan silver dollar

    Most Likely You could get $10.00 to $15.00 for it, "IF" you were intrested in selling.
    But I know Better.

    you Could always Contact Home Shopping, & say it's a Rare Variety, that has been handled by Thousands over the years, & that it even has some Scratches to prove it.

    But Today Only ;
    $99.99. NO, $89.99. NO, IF YOU CALL NOW, $79.99 plus $15.99 Postage & handling & a Small fee of $7.99 for Insurance, You'll sell it.

    Just Tell Them, If they Have any Collectors in their Family, they would Be Proud to have it as a Centerpiece in their Collection. and they should Supprise them with it for their Birthday. Of course it's never too Early to start Buying For Christmas

    Re: 1923 Morgan silver dollar

    Naw, not for sale. I think there's a lot more collecting goes on here than selling or should I say hoarding? I'll just put it with all my "treasres" and handle it occasionally to remind me of my adventures@ JIM

    LOL!!

    You ever see those common date/mint $20 St. Gaudens they try to push off on the UNsuspecting as BU for 2xs their true worth!?

    I seen them selling one day on there for $995.00 + s/h !!

    They were showing scratched up junk that looked like someone dipped in cleaner and then took sand paper to it, and went to town and then dipped again!! lol

    Now I don't know about you guys but,

    I can get those in that quality for just over spot usually ($450 to $475 on avg.)

    But these guys were selling them for the $995.00 + s/h and selling them like "hot cakes"! In fact, they sold every single one of them BEFORE the segment was done!

    Just goes to show how much people "think" they know about coins!

    People buy that JUNK and bring it into my buddies coin shop to sell, and they say "what will you give me for these"!? I bought them on QV# or Home shopping #etwork and paid $___

    My buddy will say (depending on exactly what it is) 1/4 to 1/3 to 1/2 of what YOU paid!! And they usually walk out the door swearing, and calling HIM the thief!?

    Problem with that though is,

    they take the junk to several different coin shops with their over-blown idea on what the coin/s are actually worth, trying to get the $$ they paid, and in a LOT of cases, a few days later, will come back to my buddy and say - "ok, I'll take your offer because you offered MORE than every one else in town"!

    Re: 1923 Morgan silver dollar

    Yep L_W , Exactly my point.

    One show I was watching, they were selling 1900 Morgans in 1999.

    ? saying in 2000 they would be a goldmine.

    someone called in and said "With all them Scratches It's not a very nice coin your selling"

    ? Their So-Called "EXPERT" said, This Coin was Handled my Many People, and Because of this, it makes it more Desirable By Collectors.

    Later Someone Else Called in And Started saying :? ?" I bought a silver Dollar off you last time, for my husband. And he took it to a Local Dealer And He Said" (At this Point, they shut her down, and started Bragging the 1999 up again)

    ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? WHAT A JOKE?

    This is why the local public is bidding higher then dealers at estate auctions these days. They think their getting deals.

    Re: 1923 Morgan silver dollar

    I know this may be somewhat off topic...

    Those TV coin selling shows are always claiming how rare Morgan and Peace Dollars are
    but they always seem to be able to find a blue million to sell to viewers.

    They claim that "thousands of silver dollars were melted down during the 1980's" but they can never quote how many were actually melted.
    I know that i sold many dimes and quarters when silver prices rose during the 1980's but i kept all my silver dollars and most people i know did the same.

    Also watch out for their state quarter scams....

    Just my 2 centavos,

    just a bit of info, its called the Peace dollar because of the way the Eagles wings sit folded down,not flared up like the Morgon,I think you will enjoy reading up about the Peace dollar,and keep your eyes peeled for the 1921 peace dollar

    Re: 1923 Morgan silver dollar

    In all faairness from what I have read in this post, no one could really tell you what it's worth as there are too many variables . It's kinda' whatever the market will bear, and who knows from day to day? Monty

    I have seen some of the coin shows on shop at home channels, but I have never heard anyone call in and say anything negative. Come to think of it, they never seem to air any calls. Maybe that is because they already know not to!
    Even IF their coins were in the condition that they claim, when you look up the exact same coin, in the same condition that they claim theirs are in, it is likely to be worth one THIRD of their price.
    The weirdest thing is that some coin dealers actually make excuses for them! (They promote coin collecting, or they have to pay the TV costs.)
    A million dollars in clad is still a million dollars.

    Don't trust ebaY. People go nutz there. I hear "I won this on ebaY" all the time. I tell them, "No, you didn't win it. You just agreed to pay more than anyone else in the world would."


    Check the grading service website

    http://www.pcgs.com/prices/

    It's also a good idea to invest in a photo grade book for US coins if you want to figure an approximate value for your finds by grade. Last I knew PCGS wouldn't grade a "dug" coin because they can't estimate how "environmental damage" and discolorations effect the grade.

    THEN, check it against ebaY.

    I've seen used items sell for more than new in-th-box items off ebaY. Great place to sell but be careful what you bid.

    I have a well worn 1921 Peace Dollar I keep loose just for the pleasure of handling a "real" silver dollar once on a while. I also have one MS-65 slabbed Morgan just to remind me of what a beautiful coin it really was/is.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
