Hello, I won this Morgan dollar at an auction:

https://www.greatcollections.com/Co...ar-NGC-AU-58

This is my first silver coin ever, and as I started to find out more about silver coins by doing some research, I encountered lots of information on artificial toning, dipping, retoning etc. Now I am wondering: what do you think about the Morgan dollar I won, has it ever been dipped and retoned/artificially toned or is the toning original?

Thank you for your help!

I see no obvious sign that this coin has been dipped. It looks like original surfaces for a lightly circulated Morgan to me. NGC seemed to think so as well.

I can't speak on if it's been dipped before, though I don't think so, but the toning it has now looks very natural and original. This type of toning is often referred to as 'satiny', or 'creamy' toning. Thought not as high end as 'monster' or 'rainbow' toners, this type of toning really gives a look of originality, and often is a sign that the coin hasn't been cleaned to any major degree, if at all.

Looks just fine to me. Toning is all personal preference. I prefer blast white Morgan's myself, or a slight peripheral toning. This to me is more appealing than the, IMO, overly hyped "monster toning".

Congrats on your first silver!

Thank you very much for your replies! Those are some good news as for me, originality is one of the most important factors when buying a coin. Thats why I personally would always choose an original toning over a higher grade...

Can I exspect the coin to keep its current toning or is the toning likely going to advance? I like it the way it is now...

If kept in the slab and in neutral conditions it's unlikely to change significantly, a least not for the next 10+ years

I wouldn't worry. NGC has graded this coin as a problem-free AU58. If it was in any way cleaned or artificially toned, they would have noted it.
