Picked this up for $51. The 1887-O is a slightly scarcer date in the Morgan series. Thoughts on grade and problems? Thanks!

Tough to say from those pics. Does the coin have "flash" and cartwheel lustre?

If so, it MIGHT be uncirculated and grade around 62 to 63. The toning looks original. The marks and scuffs on the face hurt it. The weak hair over the ear is typical for New Orleans coins.

Overall I think you did OK at 51$. Others may have a different opinion.

Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few days of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?
