Hello there, my name is Joćo, I write from Brazil and this is my first post here in the forum. Thank you all for this space and for your time.

This week I bought an interesting Morgan dollar, struck on the reverse and completely flat on the obverse.
I did some research and found about uniface coins but still have not found a picture of a Morgan dollar with this characteristics, only smaller coins. So I'm not sure if there are even original coins like this one.

It has a "O" mint mark and looks very similar to my other "O" Morgan, if it wasn't for the more copper/brass/olive color instead of the usual clean silver. But it does have the silver bling sound. Sounds like silver but looks like copper.

The coin has the regular diameter, is only 16.5 grams, it's thinner than a regular one and the edges are like two steps, as if a reeded coin was struck into a coin with smooth edge.

Have you see one of these? Any idea if it“s a real mint error?







Thank you all and have a nice week :)

Joćo

Appears to have been placed into a bezel. You should be able to remove it.

Ground down, mounted, plated, and the plating now wearing off?

This is definitely not a mint error. I agree with jimbucks, it looks to be in a container. There is overlap on the edge.

First,
Possibly a former plated belt buckle? I could see someone splitting the coin to be able to make two belt buckles from one coin. Purely a guess here, but I can't think of another explanation. It definitely didn't leave the mint that way.

I would presume it's a brass "made for jewellery" replica. Perhaps intended to be inserted into the base of a plate or cup.
