    Try APMEX for starters and work with their links to get most of the common dates in MS 64:wink:

    https://www.apmex.com/product/7164/1878-1904-morgan-dollars-ms-64-pcgs

    https://www.apmex.com/product/7540/1885-morgan-dollar-ms-64-pcgs

    Now an 1893 S in MS 64 is going to be upwards of half a million.

    Wish you all the very best with putting together the set.

    Cheers.

    Larry Shapiro and Don Rinkor carry tons of Morgan’s. Give them a try. I’ve purchased dozens of coins from them (but only a couple of Morgans).

    Do you expect all to be certified? There is a significant risk buying high-grade coins raw, especially when you're doing it remotely; if you're an expert grader (and you always can return the purchase if you don't like it), the risk is less, but still there. Being off one grade can be expensive, especially for the less common (but not scarce) dates (or if you make a habit of it).

    I don’t know if you are planning a complete set, a date set, or something more specialized, but I would avoid targeting a specific grade for any larger set and let the coins speak to you. Morgans range from incredibly common in 64 to extremely scarce. There are a handful of dates where fewer than 30-40 coins are known in 64 or better. If you can afford the key dates in 64 I think it would be silly to have your common dates in the same grade where for a small amount (relative to the cost of the keys) you could easily upgrade most of the rest to 65, 66, or even 67. My set has 105 coins, most of which are 64 or better and the entire value of the set is less than a 93-S in 64.

    Could be a lifetime challenge.....with up grades, etc.
    Good Luck!

    @dollarfan .... Could you be more specific about your goal? Will it be a complete date set? All mint marks? Varieties? Grades? Tarnish or blast white? Morgans are a great coin, and you will enjoy collecting them. Cheers, RickO

    Does that matter as to where you could buy them??

    With eBay and the tool of auction sniper your good to go op. Beyond that I would suggest you get out on the bourse of a show where you can buy sight seen.

    Yes sorry I wasn't very specific. I am looking at early pre barcode fatties and also early ogh pcgs. I have decided I may have one of each for most common dates/mintmarks. Blast white in pcgs and slight rim toned for fatties. Pq coin (cac worthy if not already stickered) I'm in no rush and actually enjoy the hunt as much as the purchase. The holders being in mint condition also . I have been looking for a few weeks and have only made one purchase that had called to me immediately alot of nice coins gave had the holders abused over the last 30 years so that is a challenge. I had only collected CC morgans prior so this will be a fun path. If anyone has any old fatty doubles please shoot me a pm. Thanks all

    id say it could be debated if this is solid for a 65 based on the gold cac but from the CC morgan 64s i have owned it is exceptional for a 64. the holder is in pretty nice shape also. i am hooked on the look. id say this is a 25 year project lol.

    Considering that what your looking for is somewhat specialized I doubt that there is any single source that will be able to provide you with any significant number of coins. You will just have to scour the internet and look, and relook, at lots of dealer websites. If you have not I suggest you use the collectors corner website, you can setup an advanced search to help you narrow down the results. Many of the dealers already mentioned do advertise on collectors corner.
