    That is a sweet one. And really, one of the most attractive holders from the days before slabs (officially speaking.)

    I don't think I've ever seen a Redfield coin grade that high. Wow- nice.

    For a Redfield dollar, that one is exceptional!! In fact it's exceptional for a 1900-S regardless of the holder.

    Unfortunately, there is a cartel of both dealers and collectors here that will try and brainwash you into thinking that because this coin does not have their sages little green $ticker that it was probably submitted and failed thus making it low end near worthless garbage or a problem coin that's beneath them and all other serious collectors of superior high end only coins.

    Thanks. I also have a Redfield 66+ coin.

    Impressive toning! On a better date to boot too. Wow!

    CAC does not sticker Redfield's in the original holder. I tried to talk John into it, but he would not budge!

  • What a stunner!

    Color for the (extra) point! Nice coin and those holders will come into vogue at some point, maybe 10 years maybe 50 but there will be a hot niche market for the additional degree of history someday

  • BECOKABECOKA Posts: 16,957 ✭✭✭

    I agree with everyone that like this coin and slab. Beautiful.

  • psuman08psuman08 Posts: 218 ✭✭✭

    That is one amazing Morgan. I haven't seen a Redfield that nice.

  • DeplorableDanDeplorableDan Posts: 2,476 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That will be quite an easy coin to sell when the time comes, gorgeous!

  • DennisHDennisH Posts: 13,959 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Wow!
    That is among the most beautiful Morgans I have ever seen. <3

    When in doubt, don't.

    I love it and it’s not even a proof haha!

    One question though- if Redfield got his silver dollars straight from the bank, and threw them down the coal chute, and then Paramount bought the hoard and put them in these red holders for sale, when where and how did this coin obtain its lovely blue album toning?

    Thanks! From the canvas mint bags most likely. The Redfield cardboard inserts also continued or created some of the toning. If I had owned this from the 70's, I would be able to answer exactly which source it was!

    Looks like Wayte Raymond album toning to me- perhaps Paramount had extra red holders left over and inserted some non-Redfield coins. Doesn’t really matter- beautiful coin I would be happy to own- the color just doesn’t make sense to me.

    LOVE the color and smooth surfaces on that one!

    Interesting- I’ve never owned one so I figured they were plastic of some kind

    Nice coin and holder... got me wondering if ricko might budge off his love for blast white this one time.

    The (gorgeous) toning on that coin is unlike that which I’ve seen on any other Redfield dollars, and I’ve seen quite a large quantity of them.

  • RobertScotLoverRobertScotLover Posts: 515 ✭✭✭✭

    Honestly I couldn't give a crap that its a Redfield ie in a Redfield Holder, all I care about is the incredible eye appeal, condition and toning of this special piece is spectacular. I would expect to find such a great Morgan in an old ANACS or old NGC or old PCGS holder. But no matter what I would keep it in my collection for a lifetime, it's that special.

    I saw this coin in your avatar on another thread and it caught my eye/

    Thanks for posting the full size image, it is quite stunning and I agree with others, the degree of toning is unlike many of the other Redfield Dollars I've seen in the past... Great Coin.

    What's the other 66+ you speak of and it is nearly as toned as this one?

    It's all about what the people want...

  • david3142david3142 Posts: 3,368 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That’s the nicest toned 1900-S I’ve ever seen. Amazing coin!

  • privatecoinprivatecoin Posts: 3,141 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Beautiful. I think even Ricko would have liked it.

  • The coin is magnificent and would look fantastic in any holder, but that vermillion color is a great contrast to the blue toning. Enjoy!

  • logger7logger7 Posts: 7,957 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Often NGC gives nearly pl coins a star grade; in this case it is obviously due to the eye appeal.

  • anablepanablep Posts: 5,008 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Spectacular coin that anyone would be proud to include in their collection.

    You have excellent taste in Morgan dollars.

    Always looking for attractive rim toned Morgan and Peace dollars in PCGS or (older) ANA/ANACS holders!

    I agree, but I think they are already very much appreciated in that regard.
