1921 Morgan Dollar question - New Collector - please forgive if this has been asked

Hi there,
I have been collecting for about 2 years, but too embarrassed to actually post anything because I am such a newbie. My mother has a 1921 Morgan Dollar she wanted me to find more information about, however, I am so confused when I try to research it.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me identify what type this is, and any idea if it was valued at the lower end level or more toward the $35 level?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

    The low end these days is $25. That should be in the $35 range easily.

    Thank you! It doesn't have a mint on it, so I couldn't figure out how to search it. I really appreciate your response.

    No mint mark = Philadelphia, often referred to as P. Yours is not a stunning 1921 Morgan, but better than a low-end coin. $35 seems right for this one.

    Thanks so much for the kind welcome, as well as the advice. I have about 65 coins I want to have reviewed because I am not well-versed enough to know if they are worth holding onto at this time. For instance, I have 6 mercury dimes, 22 1982 pennies (the dates look different on 3), etc.

    I am fairly certain they aren't worth much, but I'd like to know before I put them back in circulation, or give them to my nephews.

    Would you guys recommend I take them somewhere local, or send them in a batch to a place like ANACS for appraisal?

    As long as you are able to post clear photos you can get a good idea here. ;)

    Welcome to the forum. Good luck with your collecting. Show good photos of obverse and reverse for any coins you have questions about and you will receive some good information and hopefully no bad info. We have many quality collectors, dealers and numismatists on the forum that would offer help or suggestions as required.

    @Dnice8 .... Welcome aboard... There are many skilled collectors here that can help you. Already you received excellent information on your Morgan dollar. If you post good, clear pictures of other coins, you will receive such input. It would not be worth bulk submitting to a service (expensive, and likely not resulting in treasures). You may have a great coin, no way to know for sure unless you post them for our evaluation. Cheers, RickO

    Welcome to the Forum! Your 1921 Morgan Dollar looks to be in the XF to AU range and $35 seems about right for value.

    Welcome @Dnice8 .
    That's a nice hunk of American silver and they're not making them anymore.
    Yes, feel free to post pics and ask questions but if you plan on making a go of this hobby, I recommend you get this book.
    It's readily available at all the usual places in stores or online.
