Your Morgan has the correct date position for the (only) business strike obverse die. There are a few die polishing lines in RTY of LIBERTY that should still be there and visible if not too filled with circulation crud. See the attached link. http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.c...1894-P_VAM-3
Hi all, I cant see into the RTY, and cant tell if any of the other matches are valid - e.g. the lines next to Morgans initial. Are there any other checks I can do. Weight is 26.0g which I think on target for a worn Morgan. Thanks in advance
Look at the link that Dave700 sent you. There are 3 die scratches in the dirt filled area of the eagles left (Viewers Right) foot. You will need to soak the coin in Acetone and clean the dirt out with compressed air and tooth pick. If thoese 3 die scratches are not there, the coin has had a mint mark removed.
But if this is *possibly* real then I dont trust myself to do any work of any kind on the coin so would probably want to take it to an expert. I've looked in detail around the mintmark and I dont think I can see any sign of mint mark removal...
Hi. I have looked at the link (and a belated thanks for the info to Dave). I have tried to identify the markers but with just a limited loop it’s been difficult. Also not helped by the coin being worn. I’m keen to identify and find Morgans interestingbut don’t feel confident enough to work on this coin.. in case it is genuine. Hope this all makes sense
You can always send it off to ANACS for 3rd party grading and authentication. At least you’ll know for sure if it’s the real deal. Besides to be marketable in this day and age most buyers will want it authenticated anyway.
