    No way that's a '2'.
    So it must be a '1'.

    Obverse has some dirt smudges but didn't want to clean it

    Reverse Looks like a 1, Obverse looks like a 2
    Net grade 1.5 rounded up

    I think is would get a 2 at PCGS but Im just guessing!

    It's all about what the people want...

  • I see a 2. Maybe pocket piece it a little while to remove the dirt spots and kind of nullify the little digs on the obverse, and then put it somewhere that it can develop an original tone. (just a personal preference thing, I noticed the obverse has that kind of shiny-slick thing that has the look of a recent pocket piece)

    Not sure how much more wear the mint mark could take before it disappeared.

    Fair 2. There is too much left of the obverse to merit a Poor 1. (I can't believe I just used the term "merit" in this manner.!)

    All glory is fleeting.

    Of course, you would need to check on it every so often. If it gets to the point where the mintmark can't take any more wear, I'm sure someone here with enough experience with pocket pieces could tell you a method of only allowing one side to come into contact with the pocket.

    I am going to go p1. That CC is so faint I can't see it getting worse before losing the ability to tell what it is.

    Slight chance but there is a chance. Obverse might just have too much detail on right side lettering.

    P1+?

    Heaven forbid she gets a P1 then a gold bean!

    It looks a little better than a P-1

    Somebody would want it. People like this

    Too much portrait outline and detail for a PO1.
    Neat coin though.

    If it had worked a little harder, it would be a shoe in for a 1.

  • thebeavthebeav Posts: 3,751 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I would be in the 'two' camp.
    That's a neat coin !

    Can understand the fascination of a P1/F2 Morgan, but not the pricing today. If it was a WLH or other late 19th/early 20th century coin it would just be a slick selling at low bullion. Also I would be more interested in the coin if the coin was more brown or dark silver color. I question whether the 'final' wear was from circulation & the time period, or man-made from a AG or G grade. Seems too shiny to me, IMHO, esp the obverse.

  • rickoricko Posts: 98,724 ✭✭✭✭✭

    My opinion is that it would get a P01... Not a coin that would interest me for collecting, I prefer the XF to mid MS grades on these big silver coins. Cheers, RickO

    It has a shot, good luck. Just don't put it in a rock tumbler.
