Will do silverwolf. That picture was a combo LED and Halogen light mix. Does bring out more detail.
Westernsky...that would be an exciting prospect to grade that high for this year/New Orleans sample. Per PGCS they had some issues that mint year for Morgan's, with heavy bag marks/scuffs and weak breast feathers on the Eagle, and weak overall.
But when I saw it for sale, I was almost thinking I'm missing something here, because for $74 I thought too good to be true. Even MS-62 is a nice buy at that price. Pictures were good, and it did look nice. Bottom line I took a chance thinking it may look a little better in hand. Well, when I received, I was floored how good it looked in hand. Yet...I have learned not to get too excited as grading can be an interesting animal, as many folks have noted, with no guarantees. More because of my lack of expertise on that complex profession and why particular grades are awarded regardless of my opinion.
But I have to agree with you. The potential is there, and if you folks think it is a good sample with those pictures, you should see it in your hands (fantastic eye appeal). So I will have it graded.
As a side note, I have been wanting to grade many coins and keep saying I am going to get it done since I started on CC, but always something to get in the way. Lol. Life. Folks here must think I'm senile. Haha. I mean there really is no rush, but if I say I am, I want to follow through and post results for all to bounce their comments/grade call, etc., against.
But I should be starting in earnest here shortly. A new year on deck. lol A few at a time. Fortunately, many questions I posted on CC have probably saved me some hard earned cash, of coins that I realize now, after much research and help here on CC, are not worth the effort. Still nice coins, and will fill a spot in my collection effort, but need to save the grading for worthy subjects. I have about 30 more coins on the way, and always looking. Love the hunt.
So, being still new at this, in retrospect, it is better I waited and gained a little more discriminating skills before I send a coin to be graded. I'm getting better at self analyzing, but will never 'reach it'. CC is here to fill that gap, and common sense research.
. Amen. OK....I'm rambling again. Onward...
