This is my first "big boy purchase". This coin is very lustrous with only a little bit of abrasion scattered around the surfaces. There's some very minor haze visible at extreme angles. All considered I do not believe this would get a CAC sticker. However, I'm still happy with my purchase. A braver man than I would crack this out and dip it

By the way, if anyone has any ideas about the VAM on this one I'm all ears lol. Looks like it's a medium S and I can see doubling on the outside of the lower loop of the second "8", but can't see doubling anywhere else.

Very nice coin, I wouldn't worry about the little bit of toning... It adds character IMHO...

Thank you all for your opinions! I am sorry about the poor quality photos, I will be getting a new phone next weekend with better macro capability so that should hopefully help.

T-Bop, I understand your opinion. Personally, I feel the coin is just a little too clean to be a 67. I feel the 68 is deserved, but it certainly isn't a "strong" 68.

This was purchased on ebay, fromms. I offered what I believe to be a conservative price considering the coin and it wad accepted.

Very nice Morgan, @Adam_E. Given that this is a PCGS OGH, some say that they were more strict with their grading at that time and less interested in market grading. I wonder what she would grade if submitted today?

Wow a very nice Morgan! I have a few 66's but hope one day to have a 67 or 68.
Congratulations
