Hello,

I have a 1921 Morgan that I am going to try to get some good pics up. Any tips on better pics are welcome. I think natural light is better? Anyhow, here it is, what grade do you think?

I am guessing - ms 60?

One of the biggest signs of wear is that the coin has none of the mint frost and luster you'd expect from an MS coin, and has fine parallel lines everywhere which indicate the cleaning as well as circulation wear from contact with surfaces like the cloth in a pocket. Also some rub on the Eagle breast, hair and cheek which shows it has been handled.
