I'm sure a properly-motivated Congressman could legislate rights for coins, giving them legal standing to sue people who abuse them. Clearly this coin's legal rights have been violated.

I don't mind a nice blast white dipped coin with cartwheel luster but this thing looks like it was taped to a truck tire and driven around the block a couple times... :)

who cares! let them. if you think about it, it just makes your collection of non cleaned coins more valuable(fewer of them out there),sure it is not cool but better than jewelers who buy low grade coins at melt value, to melt and use the silver for jewelry which is illegal ,but done.

Someone could electro plate that morgan hopefully fill in the scratches , Put it in a plant pot with soil and fertilizer mixed in water it every few days and in a few months and reage it, get it a nice dark brown black color , heat it mildy in the oven get a lil tone to it
being so dark the surface would not reflect the scratches and it might just look pitted from being buried a aftifical 100 years
I bet it would look like a coin found with a metal detector

I think it would atleast be better then a cleaned morgan , it might grade as XF being it will never grade as a UNC or MS agian

I can understand if they didn't know any better being a non-collector, but an experienced collector is reminded all of the time not to clean their coins. And if you have the uncontrollable urge to dip and polish, use common coins from your change!

Some just don't know, and some just don't care. I was in the coin shop yesterday when this guy came in asking the dealer for 'something to clean my coins with.' Even though the dealer politely told the man he shouldn't clean his coins he wasn't detered. He said he would go somewhere else to get something to dip them in. It's probably the guy selling that Morgan!

Will it grow more of the same date if it's planted in soil and watered? Or will it just yield Pres dollars?

They weren't very gentle with the old gal either.
It is frustrating
