Default what did morgans go for pre-2010

i think the question was/is what did morgans go for pre-2010 before the melt value caught up with the numi value. From what I remember most morgans in ok shape were still 2X$, more obviously for key dates/ms etc. When spot was about 5$/oz I remember buying halves for about 5-6$ and that was retail so maybe some more experienced stackers can weigh in on this.

Default a new source

i went to a local shop today that ive been to before but never bought dollars off him, i always buy his bars and rounds for $1.50 over. i asked to see his cull dollars and he pulls out a tray and says $26 each. i snapped up 1/2 of what he had because my buddy snapped up the other half. when i went to pay him it came out to $312 and he says $300 flat, i did not argue.

How many times do I have to post this?

Here is a link that any one can reference: http://www.us-coin-values-advisor.co...1921.html#1921

Since spot hovered around $5/ozt for quite a while, paying $5 for halves was outrageous.

thats the chart, thanks. and yes 5/half was outrageous but as a 3rd grader pre-internet and with no car, buying options were limited to a ben franklins which was a crafts type store that happened to carry coins and was my only lcs of sorts. besides, any amount of money i spent on 5$ halves beats all the money i spent on baseball cards

Thanks .........
When spot was around 6 bucks you could buy an eagle for 8 bucks and the average morgan was 10 to 15 when spot moved to twenty dollars things changed.

it was just so much easier back then, the good ole days, and just a few years back.... i used to score X2-X5 weekly, great and large scores before the 2004-05 rise in POS.. then i think people started paying a bit of attention..No??
