Its definitely the most worn Morgan I've held in hand.
Should I dip it in acetone to remove the grime?

Sometimes lowball coins can bring in decent prices.

I should be more disturbed that I was able to buy this at a coin shop today for $10.

Don't dip it. The toning and a bit of grime adds to the character.

My $50 Seated dollar. First I polished it, then I put it in silver test solution to read the 1844 date.

Looks like it picked up some hairlines after the acetone -- only let it air dry, never rub or wipe it.

It won't make a grade at a TPG because the mintmark area is too worn to discern a MM, which is required for a true lowball Poor-1.

It definitely has character, though, and could probably tell very many stories about where it's been and who held it.
