So this coin isn't actually mine. My good friend asked me to look through a collection his grandparents gave him, and this was found in the last box mixed with a bunch of world coins. Now, to me this looks like an easy MS66 with very eye appealing toning, and the cheek and eagle are surprisingly clean of hits/nicks, but I don't have nearly enough experience grading Morgans as I should, so thanks for the input in advance!

Tough to see the surfaces, but 66 doesn't sound unreasonable.

Too hard to see surface markets in these photos.

The fingerprints are a distraction. Between the toning and fingerprints most likely would need to see coin in hand to provide an accurate grade.

I'm having a difficult time trying to read these images. Any call on grade would be a pure guess.
Heck, I'm not even sure those are fingerprints......the way they cross the neck, almost appears like it may have picked up the pattern of whatever the coin was resting against.
Interesting, and would love to see some different images.

I'll qualify my 66 grade as a wild, unsubstantiated guess.

UNC details, dipped and artificially retoned.
