On June 21, 2017, a quorum of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee met at United States Mint headquarters on 9th Street in Washington, D.C. We had a full day of meetings that started at 8:00 a.m. and wrapped up at 4:45 p.m., with a break for lunch on premises.

Among our agenda items was reviewing and discussing designs for the upcoming 2019 and 2020 Native American dollars. This coinage series was launched in 2009 to memorialize American Indians and, in the words of its authorizing legislation, “the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans in the development…Full article at the source>

Above is a tantalizing coin, the scarce 1892-CC Morgan dollar–not gem, as the flip states–but not bad, either, perhaps a choice or low mint state coin, worth upwards of $1200 retail. But I’m uncertain that I will bid on this lot. There is a tiny flaw. Can you see it?

It looks like a pin scratch at 12 o’clock near the rim by the “S” on Pluribus.

This is one of those tiny flaws that hobbyists often overlook. Also, that mark may not even be on the coin but on the plastic flip. That’s an optimistic attitude, but still a possibility… Full article at the source>

During my previous two posts viewers have asked about grading either because they have had difficulty with it or because they want to know how to select PCGS- or NGC-gradeworthy coins. Each denomination requires different skills. The Morgan dollar ranks among the easiest to grade because of its generous fields. However, because five mints manufactured Morgans (Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City, San Francisco, and Denver [1921]), strikes vary from strong to weak, depending on the year and mint.

By Jeff Kearns  Dec 4, 2013 (http://www.bloomberg.com) (Saving and Investing)

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said Bitcoin prices are unsustainably high after surging 89-fold in a year and that the virtual money isn’t currency.

“It’s a bubble,” Greenspan, 87, said today in a Bloomberg Television interview from Washington. “It has to have intrinsic value. You have to really stretch your imagination to infer what the intrinsic value of Bitcoin is. I haven’t been able to do it. Maybe somebody else can.”

Bitcoins, which exist as software and aren’t regulated by any country or banking authority, surged to a record $1,124.76 on Nov. 30.
