Hello dear community
thank you for your help in other cases with fake Morgan dollars. In the last few months I bought a few fake coins but luckily I got my money back every time.
Now I could buy a customer gift from a bank for $ 30. It is about 25 to 30 years in the display.I wonder if the coin in the display is real, you can't check the coin in it. What do you think?
Greetings from Switzerland, swissly

I imagine it is real. Would need to see the obverse though to be sure.

Agree, an image of the obverse will tell us much.

Thanks for the answers.
Unfortunately no picture of the back is available. It's an 1889CC. Joke. Only 1889:) Has anyone seen anything like this before? What would you pay for it if the coin is real? I think it`s nice to look at it every day on the desk. In my personal opinion, this is 100% real. Luster is incredible. I think it would receive a very good grading

Wow - thanks for the links! You can find really everything about Morgans in this forum:)
I am surprised why a German bank has chosen a Morgan dollar as a customer gift and not a German historical old silver coin...

That does seem like an odd choice.

If you read up on the Pittman Act of 1918, you'll find that during WWI, the German government began a propaganda campaign to discredit the UK's currency in India. The Germans convinced Indian citizens that British banknotes in that country could not be redeemed for silver. This led to a run on the British supply of silver. Also under the Pittman Act, 270,232,722 standard U.S. silver dollars were converted into bullion (259,121,554 for sale to Great Britain at $1 per fine ounce, plus mint charges, and 11,111,168 for subsidiary silver coinage).

Maybe in all of this, some surviving U.S. silver dollars made it to Germany?

Interesting thoughts, halfamind!
The name of the bank was Allgemeine Deutsche Credit Anstalt and was founded in 1856. It was one of the largest banks in Germany and was mainly active in northern Germany. In 1983 it was taken over by the Rabobank Group. The customer gift must therefore be older than 1983. That should actually mean that the probability of a counterfeit should be lower. In addition, a bank is unlikely to give out fake coins as gifts, but it could also be that the symbolic value was important even then.
Probably no longer of interest to collectors. But what better way to preserve a silver coin than in this way under the exclusion of air? The coin can actually no longer age unless the light radiation plays a role or a chemical reaction with the plastic ...

@swissly, for $30, I think I'd go ahead and take my chances and buy it.

Hello
here`s a picture of the other side of the coin. The dots are from the pastic and not on the surface of the coin.

Bye,
Klaus
