I co-worker brought in some coins for me to check out, and there was one in particular I would like CCF's opinion on. I guessed XF45-AU50.

I will try and go get a weight and magnet test. These have been in my co-workers family since the early 1900s. His grandmother owned a store and saved about 2 dozen morgans from people using them to pay. I did the ping test and it's definitely silver.

Yes,weight and magnet test. I am no pro but I kinda have a feeling,it looks suspicious. It is a high dollar coin if real. Good luck.

Doesn't stick to magnet and correct weight. I think this will be the last pic I'll be able to get

I'm gonna go somewhere around XF40/45. Tough coin to grade based on those pics.

The ticks on the rim between 8 and 10 do not help the coin either.

I'd say EF-45.

Pictures aren't great, but perhaps XF-45.

IMHO, counterfeit.

Compare the "3" on your date with the "3" on the date of a known genuine 1893-O.

Interesting, are there any other indicators this may not be genuine? If so, I was sure fooled. It's not my coin, my Co worker brought them in to show me. He said they were passed down from his grandmother to mother in the 70s, and his grandmother got them from a shop she owned well before that. Unless he made all that up to see if he could fool me. Either that, the rest of the Morgan's he had were indeed from his family, and this 93-O was acquired at another point from a family member and put with the rest of them.

Either way, if there are any other indicators you guys see, please let me know. I will need to break the news to my coworker if the general consensus is that it is fake.

I'm leaning towards genuine. The date position and mint mark are a pretty good match for VAM-2. Sharper pictures of the date would help.

I still think it is real.

We can cuss and discuss it here for the next month and still be in a headlock about it. Only way to know for sure either way is 3rd party grading.

That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!

If real,it is worth around $500-$700. You could send it in to ANACS and see for sure if real or not.
