I would like to hear some thoughts on where this Morgan could grade. It is in a PCI Coin Grading holder. Great luster, nice and bouncy. Thanks!

Even enlarged, pics too dark to see surface details clearly.

Pictures are pretty dark, but there is a fair amount of chatter on the cheek and surfaces. I'd say MS-63 at best.

I am at a MS-63 with these photos. More light would definitely help

Very difficult to provide an accurate assessment given the pics posted. I'm thinking low MS, unless better images appear.

When you enlarge the photos you can see lots of marks. I'm at MS-62 but a TPG would probably bump to 63 because of the tone.

I knew it was a PCI as soon as I seen it.

It is very odd how so many of these PCI's have this toning..

I'm convinced there was foul play here, and purposely bullseye toned this way.

Better pics would help.

With the obverse lack of luster and life, 62+ at best for me.

Guessing PCI said 64.

Reverese looks MS-65 to me. Obverse could be MS-62 or at best -63 but its hard to say with this picture.
Overall probably MS-63.

I hope these help. For some reason it is a tough coin to get a decent photo of.

I took the liberty of adding some light to your first photo to see the surfaces better. I'm still at MS-63.

I bought it at a coin show with 3 other coins as a package. I figured it at the $60/$65 range. I like the toning, in-hand it shows better, blue with rose. I thought the reverse was fairly nice.

PCI has her at MS65+

The dealer I bought it from never tried to claim the MS65+.

I'm at MS63 also. this coin is one reason why I dont like toned coins. the obv is in the last stages of toning...Black. some folks like that I guess as well as the vignette look

PCI is almost always high in their grades...buy the coin not the holder applies
