​GS Asks:
Why do common date Brilliant Uncirculated Morgan dollars seem to vary in thickness from 2.4mm to 2.8mm? The Guide Book makes no mention of thickness of any coin meant for circulation and there must be a good reason why they don't. Web sites that I deem unreliable, like Wikipedia, say a Morgan dollar is 2.4mm thick but my 1921 is 2.8mm and a 1886 is 2.56mm.

Now that our February Collectors Choice Online (CCO) auction is completed, we turn our attention to our Hong Kong auction taking place March 25-28, 2019, at the Mira Hotel, in conjunction with the 6th Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS) March 29-31, 2019. This auction contains a broad range of exceptional types and interesting varieties; it truly has something for every lover of Asian coins.  ​​

The 1880-CC Morgan dollar is relatively available in Mint State due to the release of thousands as part of the GSA hoard in the 1970s and 1980s. Several different varieties are known of this issue, exhibiting repunching of the date and changes to the reverse design.  The vast majority are in grades of MS-63 and MS-64, but even Gem MS-65 examples can be acquired for less than $1,000 in today's market. ​​

Test Your Knowledge and see if you can answer this week's question.​

By Q. David Bowers, Co-Founder

When great collections are sold, the vast majority of them come our way—and have ever since Stack’s held its first sale in 1935. We seem to be a magnet, attracting sophisticated numismatists when they decide to sell their holdings. As such, no firm in the world has handled as many “name” collection, rarities, and other coins, tokens, medals, and currency as we have. ​​

National Bank Notes and a particularly rare example are the focus of this week’s message. Beginning in 1864 over 10,000 National Banks issued large-size federal notes with their imprints—from Alaska and Hawaii to Maine and Florida. Showcased today is a splendid highlight from the Joel R. Anderson Collection—the  finest of just four Series of 1902 Uncirculated $100 notes certified by PCGS. And it is from the West, no less—from Los Angeles, California. ​​
