Hi guys! I rescued this Morgan from a dealer's junk box. I know they're not rare, but I thought it was in really good shape. Lots of luster and very few contact marks.

Pics do not show surface detail well enough to evaluate properly.

I'm in the same boat and don't want to give an opinion based on the pictures. Feel like something funky going on with her cheek I can see in these pictures. Possibly been cleaned in which case it won't get graded. I see blue light reflection off the entire reverse, but on the obverse it looks like it skips the cheek but can be seen on the fields around her face.

This could be angle of course, but could also be tooled to smooth out contact marks on the cheek in which case, the junk bin would be the correct place for it to have been.

There is some wear on the breast feathers. So it is not a BU coin. But the die state is fantastic. Note how clean the fields look? Just a few contact marks on the coin. Nice find.

I'm going to grade this based on your photos. if you send better ones I will reevaluate them. the lighting may be throwing off the surfaces but the coin appears to be dipped. the wing tips show signs of wear. I'm at AU58(slider) details

I guess AU-58 is probably correct, but I still find these pics odd-looking.
