Re: Help needed with 1901-O Morgan (Appears to be a cast counterfeit)

The whole coin is really bad. If its contemporary, I'd keep it; but if it's modern, then I need to send it back to the seller for a refund. The MM doesn't match the known counterfeits, and I need some guidance from those who have more experience with these.

Thanks

Help needed with 1901-O Morgan (Appears to be a cast counterfeit)

Picked this up in an online auction for $35 as a gamble it was a contemporary counterfeit. Clearly looked like a cast counterfeit from the seller's pics (which were not great), but in hand, really looks like a crude cast copy. There are signs of circulation, but I may be misreading the coin. It feel...

Re: 1888 help for a new guy

Does not appear to be a crack. I wonder... it seems to sit on the surface as opposed to changing directions with the contours and the top (above the ear) looks to loop back; could it be a string of glue stuck to the coin? An acetone bath might answer that question.

Re: 1888 help for a new guy

The long line going from the rim thru the ear looks like a staple scratch from the photo. Is it raised or does it go into the surface?

Re: Help Needed with 1878-S

Also has some similarities to some of the attributes of VAM 99 and VAM 69, but only on a couple of PUPs, and not exactly a match on them. Looked at and ruled out VAMs 17, 44, 47, 74, 79 and 102. Again, some similarities, but other than the broken 4th star (which is probably a hub issue since it is o...

Re: Help Needed with 1878-S

102 is close, but not a match. This seems to have bits and pieces of multiple different VAMs... it's driving me nuts!

Help Needed with 1878-S

Picked this up recently and can't match it. Thought initially it was a VAM 17 or in that family, but too many other things don't match up. Doesn't seem to match up to VAM 19, either. Too many other things to be an elusive VAM 2... Can use some help here as I don't have the last couple supplements. I...

Looking to buy - 1921 P-D-S

I am looking to buy a nice BU (MS62/63 range), set of 21 P-D-S Morgans. Don't want certified, just nice, unattributed coins. They will be put into a 21 P-D-S Capital Holder for my 12YO son, Michael. He has been showing an interest in my coins for a while. He has a smattering of Morgans, Peace and mo...

Re: 2021 Morgans CC and O Privy Marks

If this was truly to commemorate the last of the Morgans, they would not have the O and CC "privy marks" and they coins would have scribbling scratches!

Re: 1900-O help, please. [STILL STUCK ON THIS]

Last week I took two shots at possible contemporary counterfeit Morgans. The first turned out to be a hit (1902-o VAM 3). This one, 1900-O has me a bit stumped. It has a slanted date. Not sure whether this is a normal date or not... doesn't seem to match existing Normal Slanted Date VAMs. There is ...
