This one has certainly seen many better days. Pitted, Dipped, and retoned, this poor CC dollar has a long tough story to tell:

Ditto, I currently only have 1 CC but would love to add another with some imaginative history.

That's one of the reason why I collect Morgan's and older coins.  Imagine what kind of gritty person had this in their pocket way back then... quite an awesome thought.

That's why I prefer seated liberty dollars. They are older, scarcer, and very few of them sat in bank vaults until 1965. This CC dollar obviously saw extensive circulation, but imagine the history behind any circulated seated liberty dollar. Besides, I like the seated liberty design better.
