With crown sized coins that have head profiles (Morgans are typical) the cheek of the head profile is the most obvious place to look for nicks and scratches.

It is (mostly) for this reason that is usually OK to get away with grading heads side of the coin only. Nevertheless, a picture of the reverse would have been desirable, to help with grading.
I presume reverse in each case has fewer deep scratches.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The scratches seen in these pictures as presented on the screen,
are deeper that what is usually seen on MS coins.

All MS something, with attractive mint luster.
62, 63(scratch on neck), 61.

Alright to make more fair, I am including the Reverse photos of each coin so you all can have a second chance to vote. To make a more educated grade. The best you can for photo grading.

All marks are on the coins and not the holders.

As I had hoped, the reverses are much better.
Grading stays the same:
62, 63, 61.

All three are better than my Morgan, only a 60.

That third one has a really solid strike for New Orleans mint, so I'll elevate the last for that characteristic.

62, 65, 64.
