Here's an 1897-O Morgan dollar that I am considering purchasing. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks this coin would grade out at.

I think it has been dipped to death.

I'm not sure which photos best represent the color of the coin, as these pictures are from the seller. I would guess the third photo is the more accurate one though, because it doesn't seem to be under as much artificial light.

Looks overdipped. Probably high AU or Unc details.

Photos make it look lifeless. Could be over dipped, could be bad photos. AU-58

AU-55, honestly not sure if it has been over dipped or circulated. The halo effect is present around the devices, so I believe that it has simply been in circulation.

I have literally looked at 100+ 1897-O's in the last 6 months and I call it as AU-58 details.In my opinion.
All the natural reflections are gone.
