Although I've been collecting for quite some time and have Morgans in my collection, this Morgan was inherited. Two of the pictures I am sending were taken in natural light to mute the toning on the coin. The third picture was taken in artificial light to show the toning, breast feathers and talons.
Please take a look at the pics and tell me what you think.
Thanks

Very close to MS, but these pics suggest a possible cleaning. Tell us about the luster.

The coin has not been cleaned. The pics in sunlight take away the dark toning and some of the highlights. All three pics are of the same coin. Beautiful carousel under the toning on both sides. Virtually no scratches in fields on both sides. One small bag mark right in the center of the cheek. Will try to get some better pics tomorrow.

These pics are the best representations of the toning.

Well, the toning is still in place. I am still trying to get a good picture showing the toning. I understand what you're asking but when I take a picture of the coin outside it drowns out the toning. when I take a picture of the coin inside with artificial light, It is not an accurate representation of the color of the coin. I'm going to try using another camera. get back to you soon.

These pics are the most accurate representation of the toning but then the breast feathers and talons are not highlighted so I'm adding a close up of those.
