Picked this up at a decent price last weekend. Beautiful Morgan with great cartwheels. The holder is scratched up quite a bit, especially just above LIBERTY. I'm thinking it may be a bit under-graded. Maybe a candidate for a CAC submission?

Based on what I see MS 66 *. The pictures are not the best.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I'm new at this, but I would say MS-65. Not a lot of bag marks on this specimen.

Nice strike too.

I'll see what I can do tomorrow - I have crappy lighting indoors.

I'd say MS-64. Looks pretty mark-free, but based on these pics, I don't think there is enough luster to warrant a higher grade.

MS-63 to MS-64 range. I'll say 63+ but that could improve to 64 with more detailed photos.

Here are a few more I took outside today.










Here is the seller's Obverse pic, the Reverse was too small and dark.

Nice one. Typical soft New Orleans strike.

The obverse has several very small contact marks on the cheek, hair above the ear, date, and neck. There is one more noticeable mark on the cap below the ribbon. I'm at MS-65 on the obverse.

The reverse is really nice. I can't see any distracting marks, and very few overall. I'm at MS-66 on the reverse.

I see the net at MS-65+.

My first thought was MS64 but after seeing all the pictures? MS65.

Marks are few and the soft breast feathers are probably strike weakness. The cartwheel may be strong in-hand but most of the photos show less than gem-quality luster. The cheek looks dull, maybe from "thumbing".

These photos don't show the "pop" I'd expect from a gem Morgan dollar. Maybe I'm just cranky but I'm thinking MS-63 or even a details grade due to altered surface.

I don't think the pics are doing it justice, I think there's some luster hiding. As stated, soft strike, but not bad. I'll be at MS-65. I feel depending how it looks in hand though. Could be a 1 point swing either way.
