Looking for grading opinions for this Morgan.

I'm also wondering about the discoloration on the edge. Parts of the edge are coppery-color, other parts almost pure copper looking, and other parts greenish (like patina-color copper). Would this have been caused by prior handling at the edges? Or could it be caused a
chemical in the cardboard of the coin holder it was stored in?

Thanks all!

Looks a bit overdipped, but other than that fairly normal. Toning is fine. I'll say AU-58.

Agree, AU-58 - this looks like a typical commercial "slider" Unc.

Very light circulation, AU-58 slider.

First,

The grey appearance is typical of 1897 Morgans. The 1897 is one of the enigmas of the Morgan series, with a relatively low depression-era mintage, but an exceptionally high survival rate of high grade examples. I agree with the upthread comments, it's a nice slider (AU-58).

I agree as well. A typical commercial slider AUNC.
