This coin should be on permanent display. The morgan silver dollar is the most popular coin collected now by the American public. This coin was in contention with the current one that was actually made. This coin is very similar in the face, hair design, stars, and field. This coin would be of great interest to any of the majority of numismatists that would visit the Smithsonian. There is no other way to see the coin. There are only a handful out there. If it is not on view, we cannot see it come alive. A picture is not going to cut it. You should have an entire corner of the coin room just for Morgan and his coins. He was a long time employee of the mint - chief engraver - and he should be honored for creating such a work of art.
