Upgraded an existing Morgan dollar to this one... comments welcome
For those of you who enjoy Morgan dollar discussions, I upgraded from a PCGS MS64+ CAC to this PCGS MS66. 1883-O usually comes with a mushy strike at the center of the coin, but the combination of rim toning and the higher grade made this a no-brainer for me.
As I was researching my purchase, I examined some of the highest graded examples on PCGS Coin Facts for the 83-O where many, but not all, of the MS67 examples possess some level of weakly struck center devices. At the MS67+ level, fully struck 83-O seems to be the norm. At that price point, however, I'm not interested. Comments are always welcome and thanks for looking.
And the coin it replaces...
