100% Authentic Genuine Replica Imitation Morgan Dollar...

Post by TheYokel » Sat Mar 23, 2019 4:01 am

My new 1896-O Micro O.

She's in rough shape, but I got her for cull and it fills a hole (giggity) until i can upgrade it later. My very first counterfeit Morgan... I like it. :)

I've had more than my fare share of 'FAKE MORGANS' over the years. They're getting better all the time. Harder to spot these day's. If I had a MORGAN that I wasn't 100% sure of, I would put it on this site and let the more experienced judge for me.

Ant's coin is a contemporary counterfeit. The Micro Os in certain years were accepted as real for decades and have been assigned VAM numbers. VAM collectors look for these, especially those that were in NGC, PCGS and ANACS slabs. Those carry a very significant premium.

Can't get it added to my registry anyways, and I plan to keep my first counterfeit forever so... In the home slab she goes! Not like she needs the protection (giggity) but I'm a sucker for plastic. Anyone know what ICG charges and if there's a membership fee?

Don’t get me wrong
But can you double check if
This is really a micro o?
I’m looking at it
And doesn’t look like a micro o
(Maybe is just me)
I need one of the John ‘s opinion on this one
Thanks

Noooooo. Don't speak that evil into existence lol! I'll get a closer pic to let you guys compare. I'm only going by pictures and this VAM doesn't have the obverse gashes for an easy confirm. I'll leave this to the more experienced...

I got a VAM1 and we were all wrong about Rodney Dangerfield. I'm learning to use my usb microscope camera as we type to make some fun weekend updates. Might be a couple new letters involved... :o

(Spoiler: there's a couple new letters involved... :o)

I discovered that a lot of the current ones are made with a Peace Dollar die, maybe a sand casting, where the rays from the Peace Dollar crown show above Liberty's head on the Morgan. They are getting lazy in China.


I have two of these now that I bought years apart and they are the same.

I am not convinced it's a micro o either.
Looks like a beat up V17,

That's 2/2 saying it's a larger O. I bought a bad one? Noooooooooo! Better believe I'm getting my $17 back... :lol:

This is a very genuine, low-grade, New Orleans Mint struck Morgan Dollar.

And that is no Micro O. The Micro Os are about half that size.

I'm surprised that so many people commented in general agreement before a couple brave souls spoke up!

Hell... Lemme know, lol! I'd rather know up front than have a stinker in the collection waiting to be found out later...

Bah. Now I'm determined to find a good one...

I have to admit; I did not look that closely at the mintmark. I just assumed it to be a micro O when I explained to the first commenter that certain Mirco os were contemporary counterfeits and were sought after by collectors. Sorry if I added to the confusion.

I will chime and say it is a normal 1896o Morgan. I saw the wing gap and noticed it was normal for the year and blew up liberty and it was pretty normal for an ag3.
