Friction on the high points. I'd be at AU-58 on this one.

Again, not looking for an AU58 common date. Too bad.

On this one, I hear you about the friction, but I was hoping for a weak strike. I have a hard time telling between week strike and wear, but there seems to be luster throughout, even on the flat areas that might be wear. It looks a lot like this one on eBay, too, which is MS65. The wear pattern, or strike pattern, seem very similar.

I had heard that O mint Morgans can have very weak strikes and everything else looked solid. I felt there was luster everywhere on the coin. Price was right to take a risk, but that doesn't mean I won the bet!

Like the other, hope a few more opinions come in, and thanks for yours so far, IndianGoldEagle.

Here they are side by side, MS65 and then mine.

since the 84(O) strike is typically average to soft, this one is AVG. AU58
