    So I'm rummaging through a closet and I find my late father's coin collection. There's a bunch of silver dollars from the early 1900's, a bunch of WWII era Japanese money. Japanese Pesos?

    About 40 coins in total and 14 notes.

    After 5 minutes of research, I know these are Morgan Dollars. I know nothing of coin collecting. :lol:

    The coins are scanned in the same order, the top scan showing tails, the bottom scan showing the respective heads.

    What do y'all think?

    I think the one dated 1900 may be worth a few hundred dollars! There's an outside chance it may be a rare type of Morgan Dollar because of the "O over CC" mark; these kinds of silver dollars can fetch tens of thousands of dollars; highly unlikely IMO, but I'm getting it appraised.

    The others are worth between 40 and 100 dollars each. Not a bad haul! :lol: Just kidding, I'd never sell them (for sentimental reasons.) They belonged to my deceased father; he was a coin enthusiast in the 1950's.
