The date position does not match any of the VAM listings. Sorry, but Chinese fake it is...

Attached is a link to a listing with photos of the date position of authentic '95-O Morgans. http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.c...1895-O_VAM-4

This one was easy just from first glance. The more you see them the easier it is to spot them.
They just have that look and it's not hard to find em on the no no site.

Right, the Chinese fakers used the same pair of dies and just changed the date from 1895 to 1896.

It's kind of hard to understand to someone who hasn't studied coins, but most of the time a coin either looks genuine or fake. Upon initial glance you immediately know if it looks fake or real, because you have looked at thousands or tens of thousands. Color, strike, details, style, surfaces, etc all go into that initial thought but much of it is kind of subconscious. That's why some people will say it looks fake or real initially and they are correct 95%+ of the time, even though at that point they don't exactly know consciously why.

Then after the initial view, you look for all the other small details to confirm or disprove your initial impression. It's an odd skill.

Welcome to the forum. On your example, there are counterfeit die markers evident. It's details are mushy, plus your coin's lettering and date logos do not match a genuine 1895-O Morgan dollar. The toning/coloration also looks like what has become the "classic" Chinese counterfeit toning and wear pattern. All indications point to a Chinese-made fake. Do you have any idea from where your grandfather purchased/obtained it?
