I want to make sure these Morgan's are legit before I bid. I relatively new to coins but something looks a little off to me. I'm just not experienced enough to be sure. I may be over scrupulous after reading all the stories of fakes on here the last couple of days. I'd also appreciate any advice on a "don't go higher than" bid on these. Thanks in advance for the help.

They all look real but beat. I wouldn't pay more than $15 for any of them.

They are all genuine, but they are " Morgan dollar junk box" type stuff, especially the 1899-O, which mostly has its silver content going for it.

The coins look real, but once you get them in hand you still should do a weigh and magnet test. If you are buying for melt, the coins are fine. If you are buying to collect, you should look for better examples.

All appear to be genuine low-end examples that are worth about 14$ to 17$ each on a good day.

You might want to take your money down to the LCS or pawn shop and rummage through their pile of Morgans being sold as scrap silver. Would be more fun and you could hand pick something that really makes you happy. I don't see anything about these that is very motivating. There are literally millions and millions of these in junk silver boxes at local coin shops around the country.
My hoard of '82s is up to 172! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 3, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 12, 1682 x 13, 1782 x 41, 1882 x 45, 1982 x 26

All appear genuine. I wouldn't pay more than $18 or $19 for any of them and in an eBay auction it's nearly impossible to buy Morgans at that price.

If you have a coin shop within a reasonable drive it would be worth a trip as noted above.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'll check around some local pawn shops and see if there are any coins shops around.

I really do like the look of the 1884. If it doesn't get to high I may bid on it. I like coins that have a story to tell. Blast white and MS coins are nice, and I'd gladly own any one of them, but there is something about a used, but still decent coin that I like. That gun metal gray look really catches my eye.
