Harshly cleaned. Note the common parallel long strokes/ scratches all going in the same direction on the obverse...too bad

Was inspired to share my story from the "1796 Real Or Fake I Can't Tell " post
My objective is to help new collectors from getting burned.
Almost a cliché now a days but still holds true....buy the book before you buy the coin...
This "gem" was in a Chinatown Toronto shop. They wanted the healthy sum of $5.00 for this "silver antique". I refused to pay, but am not ashamed to say I stole it as I knew it was fake & these people were helping fund counterfeiters.... The real coin is worth a FORTUNE.
The diameter was right, the weight was very close, but alas it was magnetic and obviously a crappy cast. But still, new comers to this hobby might get taken. The China fakes are getting better & better all the time....Beware friends.....
cheers

I think this coin may be a China counterfeit. But more work to do...
It appears cast using a mold vs a die strike. (surfaces appear a bit bumpy / bubbly). Easy indicators.....Remove from holder
1) Is it magnetic ?...If so, it's a fake. Silver is not magnetic
2) Compare the diameter of the coin vs red book specifications
3) Compare weight vs red book specs. This is definitely where most China fakes mess up. Even if made with silver content, they have a hard time getting the weight right.
My biggest advice I would give to any collector is before you buy, read first. Buy all the book you can & educate
Hopefully you didn't spend any $$ on this......
cheers

Agree with wallyb 100%
Eventually you or someone in your family will liquidate your collection.
Having it slabbed makes it a lot easier to do so. Collecting with any sort of passion is great, but you have to think of the back end.
Also, for the most part, slabbing greatly reduces oxidization (toning) on your beautiful coin. Silver is a very reactive metal to air elements & it's 50/50 if the "toning" will favor your coin. I know costs, depending, can be expensive, but IMO its worth it with a CC Morgan.

Cheers

Tough call from these darker photos. Does actually look PL with Cameo, but the chatter is hard to get past. Probably much better in hand...Nice outer rim toning on the reverse though I must say...

Cleaned silver coin tips....
- surfaces are flat & dull (almost gray )
- reflective "hour glass" quality is gone
- no 109 year old silver coin with that much wear should still be "shiny" on all the raised points only

VG8 details (cleaned) grade for sure...
