I'm trying to get better at grading so request that you please be brutally honest, I need the good and the bad to learn. Besides mentioning what you believe the grade is, any additional comments about condition is appreciated. I am posting them in the order I bought them, and when I first started bidding on these coins at Ebay (about 4 years ago), I really didn't know a thing so many of my early coins will be some of my worst buys. I still make mistakes now and then but not quite as often. All but 15 of that 250+ silver dollars were won with bids between $15 and $35 so none, even the bad wins weren't too costly. This is my #7 coin.

I notice some vertical scratches across the cheek and in front of her face. Was this someone trying to clean this part or could it be natural abrasions? Also a deep cut on the eagles wing. How does this lower the grade or value?

I'd say AU, looks like wear on the high points of the hair notably by her temple.
Staining on the cheek and above the eye is not good.
The obverse hairlines jumped out to me, and I'm worried the vertical orientation is indication of a cleaning, or some sort of unwanted rub.
This is a rather common Morgan, so in terms of value, in this state, it is entry level commons box for not much over scrap, if it was my opinion and wallet on the line.
My hoard of '82s is up to 172! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 3, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 12, 1682 x 13, 1782 x 41, 1882 x 45, 1982 x 26
