I would like your opinion on this Morgan. I am working on grading this one. I bought it and when I got it I was uncertain that the grade I bought was accurate. I am new to Morgans and hope to pick up some grading ability with them. Appreciate your input.
the 02(O) typically have average strikes. I think this one is a tad better than that. luster appears to be good except your last photo is showing it could be broken on the cheek. I think surface preservation is pretty good except for a few marks on the reverse. the biggest deduction will be for the chin and neck. solid MS63 in my book
Wow - great input. Thank you very much. I am struggling trying figure out what exactly makes one coin mint state from non au. I am new to this (duh) but I just assumed mint state would not have any blemishes or marks so I've been surprised by all the marks and blemishes on even ms 64-65 morgans that are listed on ebay.
