Thanks to Slider and BadDog for the additional comments. If I can locate my USB microscope, I will try to examine the die markers as described.

Good point about posting separate photos - I didn't consider that more detail would be needed for a better examination. If I still have the individual photos, maybe I'll post them here later.

On another note, I sent this photo to GC for analysis at their request and they came back with the opinion that the coin may not be authentic based on mint mark. As I said, I will be taking this coin to my August club meeting for first-hand evaluation before sending anywhere.

Edit:

please get this coin graded and then auctioned


Missed this prior to last reply. That is the plan.

You do know that GC will send it to a TPG on your behalf prior to auction, right? That carries a lot more weight than people at your coin club.

Yes, Heritage has the same package. I just don't want to go through the process unless I'm sure it's the real deal.

For the record, I would bet money on the Morgan specialists in my club - they've been at this for decades. There are very knowledgeable specialists on this forum as well, but it isn't fair to pin them down using only my sub-par photos.

I received a reply from  Heritage after contacting them. They asked for a photo and then offered to buy it. Is that their usual routine? I thought they only took consignments?


Yes they offer cash for coins all the time. They usually offer less than what the coin would bring in auction of course, they do take consignments but more look for larger or major collections in the $100K range or more. My experience anyways, I have a couple of good friends fairly high up in their organization. Great Collections is a good company too, they can provide the certification as well.

I would want to know if the coin is genuine before sending it to them for sure. No need to waste everyone's time and cost a bunch of money only to find out it's a fake. Take it to your local coin group, maybe look into some local dealers, ANA and PNG dealers to get fair shake at the price, though I would NOT sell to them, they are not going to be the best price.

Great idea, Westcoin - thank you. I will see if my LCS is open this weekend (very often away at shows) and take it to them for a look. They're a good bunch of guys and gals.

Below are the die markers with the rabbit ears in the left leg of the R and the slash in the T. There is another little know die marker. You should be able to easily see these die markers with 10X magnification. If these die markers are on the coin, I am almost certain you have a genuine example.

My USB scope has a light ring that cannot be turned off, so I wasn't able to get good, axial lighting on the incuse letters. But, I do see signs of the bunny ears. Hope to confirm with the microscope at the club meeting. I also attached higher res raw images of obv/rev.

Thanks to all who have offered opinions and advice. I will let you know how this all proceeds.
