Not worth sending in to be slabbed, IMHO.A coin need a retail value of at least $150 to justify all costs involved in sending in. Also a few too many photos.

Too many pics was for different lighting to show coin details. The color and actual bright gleam of natural photos was so shiny the details around coin were hard to make out. I looked at alot of grade pics of 1890 Proof Morgans. There were lots of 64s that looked same condition condition. And 63s with way more light scratch damage than this one.
If you pull up rim pic , look close at flat side of coin straight down for the reverse. You can see the actual full shiny look and no toning or grey/beige color that's in reverse pics

Sorry, but it's not a proof. It looks to have XF sharpness, but cleaned, which is likely why it has a shiny appearance.

Ahhh, well that makes sense. And not gleamy as in proof. But definitely coin's reflection from flash made me do those dull low light pics. Couldn't get one pic out 100 to show the actual look of coin in person on both sides. It looks waaaay better than group of2015 quarters beside it, and 1890 long time ago. Appreciate the info on the cleaning.. #129304;I wouldn't have ever figured that out. Thanxs thanxs#128591;#128175;%

To avoid issues with the flash, I suggest using strong natural or artificial light. The photography threads here can give you a lot of good advice.

Just a FYI: Proof is not a condition, it is a different minting process than business strike coins.

Agree with the opinions above. And yes, avoid flash photography with coins.

Hi there,
The grade looks to be about AU50 at best in my opinion. It would also come back with a details grade if you sent it in and it wouldn't be worth doing as it would have a maximum value of $50 probably.

Put me in the do not slab and avoid flash when taking coin photos. I like white as the best back ground color. Your images are tinting the coin color based on back ground color. Best angle is directly overhead. Trash the out of focus photos. When you are taking a photo, try to get the photo to represent what the coin looks like in hand.

After trying many types of light bulbs, I have gone to using a LED day light bulbs, desk top lamp, with 3 power settings. It allows me to adjust the lighting for different types of coins. I am not calming to have all the photo answers, but found something that works for me.
