I have several completely black/dark blue Morgan dollars in my collection. I ended up getting a book a while back that had them all in it. If I submit them will they grade at all? They actually look quite nice in hand, just flat black. I mostly just want to get them slabbed to prevent it from actually becoming environmental damage. I personally like the look of them, but I know if the community they would be considered down right ugly. Is it worth expecting some kind of grade and sending them in at a higher tier or send them at the lowest slowest tier and save me some money slabbing them? Couldn't find another post regarding this topic. Below are a couple of pictures of the dollars in question.
Thank you guys for the tips. I guess it was kind of a dumb question to ask. I have airtites too. I don't know why I didn't think about it. I just like the way NGC slabs their coins, but that would be a huge waste of money. Airtites it is.
I was about to share some "black" Morgans my father has with (almost) the same question... are "darkened" coins (not exactly toned) not desirable? I swear every single one I see for sale at Live Auctioneers are nice and silvery... every single one!!
