1889 Morgan Dollar

I'm not selling but do I have a hot Morgan?
We don't have PCGS here in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
My coin will be graded once I find PCGS or other reputable grading company here in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

    Do you mean a stolen morgan? Looks like a Morgan to me. Probably XF grade, probably worth $40?

    For what it’s worth, I don’t think the coin merits the cost of grading. It’s been circulated, has questionable color and is worth approximately $35.

    If it had a CC (Carson City) mint mark below the wreath, between the D & O of "Dollar" on the reverse, then you would have had quite a nice dollar worth more than $2000. As is, it may be worth $30.

    Always looking for attractive rim toned Morgan and Peace dollars in PCGS or (older) ANA/ANACS holders!

    Just a common date circulated Morgan Dollar. It is worth whatever the market happens to be for common Morgans at the moment. The silver hoarders like them so it will bring more than melt. It is not worth slabbing.

    All glory is fleeting.

    As noted above, likely not worth the cost of slabbing. However, it would make a good album coin if you do a series. Cheers, RickO

  • You make a perfect sense, grading is just for my curiousity satisfaction, I'll be handing down most of my coins to my next generation, thank you.

    If you don't have an album then Just put it in a Black ring air-tite capsule. Morgans look pretty nice in them.

    The good news is it may have a shot at a straight grade.
