Also, it is worth getting it graded by PCGS? Purchased a lot of morgans from an auction and am deciding which ones are worth getting graded. Thank you for your input.



Posting some additional images.

Not the best photos to grade from, but it looks EF-45 to AU-50. Not sure about the surfaces as it might have been cleaned.

I'm not sure how accurately I'm reading your images but I'm at EF45 maybe AU50. Is the lustre on it better than the images?
As a side note it is a reverse die of 1878 which is not nearly as common as the slanted arrow feather reverse of 1879.

Aside from the part that is toned, it has nice luster that the pics are not capturing very well.

Hard to tell with the lighting in these new photos if the surface has been cleaned. 80-CC is a better date and worth getting slabbed.

AU53/55 poor lighting and out of focus photo makes it difficult to determine original surfaces but it does appear to have been cleaned

AU details cleaned. Really difficult to grade from your photos. From your photos the coin appears to have been cleaned and retoned.

AU50 details, cleaned, and as Dave noted, the scarcer parallel arrow feather (PAF) reverse of 1878. It's also an overdate (80/79).

I don't think it looks all that bad, probably better in hand, and this is a far sight better than my own example of the same coin!
