About This Set: BOTBOTW: (1878 ~ 1921) Morgan dollar with Major Varieties low ball set ~ This is one of the most challenging and difficult sets created outside of the Top100 Low Ball that a collector would ever want to be up against. With a total of at least (20) VAMs required for this run most VAMs are found in much higher grades and most often damaged in lower grades. Starting with the Basic Morgan Dollar set and adding these VAM examples is like adding icing on the cake. The first coin 1878 8TF PO01 represent a history dating back to 1948 when the coin was placed into a coin album and sat there till 2010. All the wear you see on this coin took place in the first 70 years after being struck. The 1878 7/8TF PO01 was a questionable coin. It had some faint markings of a VAM-37 making it a "STRONG" variety type coin. But it took three tries before PCGS graded it on 12/14/2011 four days short of seven years ago. The famous Carson City mint shares a few of these variety type coins as well. Special note: Several of these coins have been downgraded since the set was first retired on 07/11/2016. The HOF Morgan Dollar Basic lowball set and this set showcase some exceptionable examples of all the coins shown here. Created: 01/31/2016 ~ Upgrade/Updated: 12/10/2018

Amazing set. I totally understand the time required to put this set together.
Thanks for taking the time to share it and let other dollar collectors realize there is something besides highest grade coins. Low ball sets show lots of history.

As always this is an outstanding set and accomplishment by Sourdough. His sets are always the best of the best and a goal for anyone to match. The number of top pop coins is a real accomplishment!
