Day2 FUN

Perfect weather for the long walk from hotel to show. Arrived early so I attended the intro to collecting Seated Liberty coinage seminar. Missed opening of show, so no idea how many hit the for at 10:00 AM.
My current scope of collecting is
1878 Philadelphia Morgan Dollar Vams, so I went to a couple of dealer tables known for vams and spent my allowance on these four..

None of these are even remotely close to top pops, etc.
But I still like playing in the registry pool even if just a minnow.
Late afternoon I attended John Roberts top twelve vams for 2019 seminar then “Annual Vam Thing”.
Looks like Saturday will include more seminars unless I break out the credit card.
Thanks for reading.

    Nice looking Morgans... I have no idea at all about VAMs....Sometimes makes me wonder if I have any among the Morgans I have.... just never even considered looking. That being said, you seem totally immersed in the field... So congratulations on your acquisitions... Cheers, RickO
