That sounds complicated for sure but perfectly innocent on your part.

I'm sure if you explain the situation to the seller they will understand.

Especially true if they have a return policy as the outcome of you returning the unwanted coin after paying sounds like a waste of time and money on postage!

Thats probably because you saw my last morgan dollar post Coinfrog, the photos are very similar.
Maybe I should improve my photography skills before I develop a signature style!

This is my second CC morgan purchase. You guys seemed to have good things to say abouy the 1883 I posted a little while ago so lets see how I've done with this 1884!

I did my best to eliminate glare from the holder, hopefully this is good enough for a grade estimate. It looks nice and clean in hand with the small dink on the cheek being the deepest mark.

Thanks in advance for your valued opinions and expertise!

Matt (:

I'm pretty new to this too but based on these photographs I would say maybe AU55. I'm interested to see what the other more experienced members say!

I wonder what the reason was for such aggressive treatment of the die, are their any traces of a die clash at any point on the coin?

Thanks for the reples, grading standards for peace dollars seem really tough, especially when compared to morgans. I'm actually quite happy with the coin for the price I paid but still looking for a gem example.

Thanks for the input, I agree it is pretty hard to pin down. I would love to think its ms65 material but the dings on liberties forehead and cheek may prevent that.

Im happy enough with ms64 but maybe its not worth sending to get graded.

Hi again, another dollar in my collection I have been wondering about grade wise, what do you guys think?

The Colour of the coin is quite a bit less dark in hand but these are the best photos I could get for showing all of the contact marks.

Thanks,

Matt (:

Awesome work guys, thanks for the clarification, the contact mark on the jaw (close to the neck) is a little deeper than I would like to see so I'm pretty happy with a solid MS64!

And I'm even more pleased now it has the CCF seal of approval!

Wow trippy! I really like how the later morgan designs could pass for ancient greek coinage!
And how Lincoln slowly transforms into pope Francis haha!

Hello all,

Its been a while since my last coin purchase but when I saw this morgan I decided to treat myself. Any CC morgan is a rare sight where I am and the added history of the GSA holder made it too good to miss!

Hopefully the pics are good, the holder introduces a lot of glare.

Thanks,

Matt (:

okiecoiner, the majority of what you can see avross the face is recessed but at each end their is what looks like copper wire (very thin) sticking out. You can see it on the zoomed pictures.
