This coin is at an auction, I like it and may bid on it if the price stays reasonable, but would appreciate second opinions before I commit. They are seller pictures but not too bad. Would like your opinion as to grade and if that spot at lady's neck would affect grade at all, or would details it or just a lower the grade. Thanks in advance .......

the breast looks a little weak for this issue. the coin has rub and surface abrasions, minor scratches and discoloration (not sure what that is and if it would come off). maybe MS63 but I'm in the MS62 box

MS61 The white spot above the star looks like it might be a stain, it could detail the coin.

What's up with his feet? Looks like extra metal was slapped on there. But I'm no pro and only have been looking at 1889 Morgan's for now.

A bit splotchy but I'm at MS-63. Lower end of that range.

Nice luster and the abrasions look shallow and mostly minor. The obverse spot hurts eye appeal a bit but shouldn't cause a details grade IMO. MS-63 seems likely, though it would not be choice for that grade.

Just wanted to say thanks to all that gave your opinions.

Unfortunately this was an eBay auction and there were two Yahoos that both apparently needed it more than a breath of air and battled each other way beyond my "good buy" area, and so I let them have it.
