Well this is the first hole I've filled in this set in a couple years, I guess that blows my budget too!

Just acquired this. 1923-P PCGS MS-65

 

Closest thing I've seen to a "Black Beauty" in my years of collecting, that was for sale.

Yes, it has a D mintmark and resides in a PCGS green label holder graded MS-62.

Excellent...I like the orangish/pink color. Is that true or is it just the photo? hm

Yes, that's pretty much what it looks like (despite my atrocious photo skills), to me it's a solid 62, a couple of marks on the reverse and a little flatness on Liberty's face. It's amazing to me when I look over my set how grading has "evolved." My 1924 is such a common date with lots of high-grade pieces, yet I have one in MS-62 that I wouldn't trade for many 64s today! In any case, I'll enjoy this one for the next few years before I'll be able to fill another hole (most likely the 1908-S or the 1926-D as those are the most attainable open spots I have right now.

Nice Buffalo! Man those things are hard to distinguish from MS strikes in pictures.

 

Here is the latest addition to my Morgan set:

Thanks, and nice DMPL 82-O as well!

 

It sure is, but it was a little easier to distinguish based on the seller's photos as opposed to the trueviews. When I saw the listing pop up my first thought was "proof".

The Heritage Photo accentuates the blue. At the correct angle, it is very close in hue. I was very happy to have won this recently. The luster on the obverse is very strong and enhances the toning nicely.
