“I’m hoping to enjoy my collection along with friends and grandchildren for a long time,” said David Miller, the collector of this Morgan dollar set.

Miller has been working to assemble this super set with his friend Ash Harrison, an established coin dealer, for nearly two decades.

“The Miller/Ashmore Morgan dollars super set is a testament to a dedicated collector working with a great dealer to achieve an incredible collection of Morgan dollars,” said Don Willis, PCGS president. “I’m so pleased PCGS was able to assist Mr. Miller in achieving a fantastic goal.”
