Show your really worn Morgan’s

PppPpp Posts: 444 ✭✭✭✭

A friend just gave me the most worn Morgan I ever owned. I think it is a 1894s (maybe 1884s) and grade 1. I don’t play the low ball coin game but I think this coin is pretty cool.
I am confident there have been other posts on worn coins.

    Worn but pretty beat up. I actually pulled this out of a coin counting machine in the lobby of my credit union. I bumped a bunch of coins into the shoot. They wouldn't go through the machine, it was jammed. The teller came out and opened the machine. This was jammed and spinning inside. She cleared the jam and handed this to me....."she obviously thought it was mine... wrong". The machine only took 1¢ up to the small dollar coins, not the old large silver dollars. Someone dumped it in, not knowing.

    My unit does not top any herewith - but I picked it up in 1986 for $5 -
    it was a steal for a 1896 common date; at least I thought so. I
    wondered if it was fake but it weighs 26.7 gms so OK. The grade
    is questionable and it looks processed/cleaned - no visible cartwheels
    but it is a nice coin. It was my first 19th century coin.

    This isn't mine, but I saw it on eBay a while ago and thought it was funny.

    Interesting wear pattern on the ASE. Good thing those don’t circulate or we’d have another buffalo nickel or SLQ on our hands.

    Not as worn as posts above, here's a gradable worn Morgan - G4 that survived intact.

    I have an 1889CC Morgan AG3.... No picture at this time, but got it when I built my CC series back in late nineties, early 00's.... Cheers, RickO
