Sellers photos...Right?

I'd say 62 when you get it in hand...

Hoping for 63...good luck

I like the frost on the devices. No deep marks on the cheek, I'd say MS-64.

Morgan pics are always tough, I could see it as high as MS64.

Looks to be on the upper end of 64. I see a lot of mint frost and few significant marks.

I'm guessing the first photo does not depict the left obverse field accurately. I'll say MS-63 even though the images suggest 64.

this is a nicely struck 85(O) which is typically are not this sharp. I'm not seeing much in the way of scratches other than rub. the photos may not be saying everything about this coin due to some reflective lighting. if the luster is not broke on the left obverse and reverse field then I can see this one at MS64 otherwise MS63+

Strange frost on the coin. It looks like someone sprayed the devices and got over spray on the fields.

this can happen due to a indirect/reflective lighting from something in the area where the photo was taken. could be anything from wall color to just color coming in from a window nearby. its not on the coin.

Thanks, I had seen photos of the California Proof Likes where the coin doctor created a proof like Morgan, but the OP image was different.

It's too good for a 63. It is MS64 straight if it looks like the photos imo.

Wow. That's a pretty sharply struck 1885-O!

The obverse has some minor knocks in the field and light abrasions on the cheek. The reverse has a couple scratches at the arrows. That's about it. Hard to tell depth of reflectivity from the pics, but the reverse sure suggests PL. If it's PL, you're into the coin for 62 money. Nice score!

IMHO, it's MS-63 obverse, MS-64 reverse, for MS-63+ PL net.
