A Cull Dollar

It has been a long, long time since I have carried a real silver dollar loose in my pocket.  I was thinking about that the other day and decided I'd order a cull Morgan so that I could do that.

When I opened the package, I was surprised to see what at first glance looked like a VF coin. Closer inspection revealed deep scratches and dings, but as a pocket piece, I was quite happy.  Scratches are better than something worn down to AG, I think.

With that now bouncing around in my jeans, I thought "why not do the rest?".  That is, why not recreate the pocket change of the early 1900's?  A few cull Barbers, V nickels and some cull Indian heads - why not?

I know, nutty.  But still a fun idea.
