Odd that they'd say an 86-P is from Denver. I suppose if it was mailed from Denver that could have been what was meant. Not sure of the value, but I imagine it would be like the Tidy House dollars.

Look at the 4 1/2 cent postage cost . Neat piece of history .

Bought this a few years ago from Todd Pollock. Paid $400 and I'm still happy I own it. 78-CC VAM 14A - not rare but...

Thanks much for post; I had never seen or heard of these before.
Yet another of many many Morgan Dollar history

I have never seen any of those before. Great history. I love the colors on that sugar dollar. I also don't remember the postage. That is very cool. Thanks all for showing us these.🐍 P.S.. That G&W sugar is still available.
