Hello, everyone.

I've purchased this Morgan dollar on ebay several times ago. It's weight is bit heavier than ususal, 26.8 instead of 26.7, so I had some doubts about it's authencity. What's your opinion on this Morgan?

Regards.

Looks absolutely authentic to me, scales are probably a bit inaccurate? I would give it MS63 definitely with a shot at 64.

Agree it looks genuine. That weight is well within tolerance at the US Mint.

Your weight is only to one decimal point when it should be to a least two points.
The actual weight should be 26.73g with a tolerance of .39g so you are within the accepted range.

when possible take coins out their holders as they can distort or hide things. based on these photos I'm not sure they are but just wanted to throw that out there. if its a scan that isn't the best either.

the 85(P) are typically seen with above average strikes. yours is AVG- for strike. the hair around the ear and the breast are little weaker than they should be for this year. there are quite a few scuffs and abrasions on both sides enough to keep it out of MS64 territory. MS63

the coin looks original

Genuine and high end of MS-63 with a shot at 64. Nice coin.

First,

I agree with the others. Genuine coin, MS-63, maybe MS-64.

Nice coin!
