Every once in a while you get lucky and I got lucky about a week ago when searching Ebay for pedigree coins. I was getting bored scrolling through the pages of Morgan silver dollars and about to quit when a listing for an 1893 Morgan silver dollar appeared and I recognized the Fitzgerald Collection label from the photo. I could not believe it. At first I thought I had the coin and checked my collection, but there was no 1893 listed. Next I grabbed my book, “Fitzgerald Silver Dollar Collection – The Purple Gang Set” and turned to the population report in the back. I quickly discovered why I did not have it – the population for this coin is “1”. And this is the one – and only – authenticated and graded by NGC from that hoard. Needless to say, it made my day! It was one of the most exciting purchases that I have made in a while.
