Fake. 1893-S date position is arguably far or far side of normal. That has a near date position. Run away!

Might be an altered 1898-S VAM-16. On second look, it is just plain fake.

All the fakes I have seen have that same toning around the stars and the rim. Also the low prices is a give away.

It might be?...it’s listed on
Offer up out of Ohio!
Sure someone will get stuck
Thinking they got a deal! Would be nice If there was a way to rid the coin
Hobby/business from these fakes. Some arrests Would be a great start.
Just My opinion!!

Just checked this OFFERUP listing. Four Morgans for sale, all key dates, none slabbed. Somebody in Ohio needs to call FBI.

It's its own site - kinda like a Craigslist knock-off.

Same reverse as my new 1893-CC VAM 六 with a different mintmark! It got the special sludge and sewage soak for "realistic" toning, though.
