    I'm guessing AU-53, but the reverse seems like it's a AU-55 or AU-58... I'd say AU-53 or AU-55 by NGC.

    How off am I!?

    Let's put it this way. What are the chances that I would own a common date slabbed Morgan Dollar in AU?

    Never know, but the obverse has some wear on Libertys hair in key spots and the reverse breast has lost a lot of detail.

    I don't trust NGC anymore after some bad experiences with them...

    The wear you are seeing is on the high points of the obverse only. If it was real wear, there would be some on the reverse as well and some friction in the fields which are untouched. This issue was known for having extremely weak strikes. IMO, the strike of the obverse of this coin is worse than most, but the coin is indeed mint state.

    What grade do you think NGC gave this coin?

    Ok I took a look at it again on a larger monitor. I'm going to say NGC gave it 64-65.

    I'm not a very good grader, that is for sure!

    I really wanted to get more opinions but I guess we need to work more on our member base first.



    The cheek and fields on the obverse are MS66 quality maybe even MS67. The reverse is a solid MS65. This is a coin with a grade limiting strike IMO.

    Yeah we need to work on forum members, we're gaining members but they are mostly in the gallery. I'm going to be working on some promotions this week to try to get some more peeps in.

    Anyhow, are you going to send it in again for a regrade, or maybe CAC sticker it?
