Need some help with these Morgans

I am cataloguing a box of coins we found in a storage unit we bought, mostly cull pennies and buffalos, few circulated 22 & 23 peace dollars as well as a couple rows of the ultra terrible INB slabbed coins. The point of saying that is to establish that there is not anything of real value in there---then I come across some Morgans in individual plastic bags. There were 4 1888 CC Morgans ( I know those are counterfeit ). Then there are these 1879, 82, & 84 CC Morgans. They seem to have a satin finish on them. There are 5 1879, 1 1882 and one 1884. Judging by the rest of the contents, I assume these are fake also, but I am hoping someone can shed some light on them. I am not well versed in Morgans. Thank you in advance!!

    I figured as much. Never seen a satin Morgan. What is the giveaway on them for you?

    "What is the giveaway on them for you?"

    Mushy details on the bright ones and on the 1888 CC the CC mint didn't make them that year. ;)

    @Southern_Knights Do your self awareness a favor and test them (Morgans) with a rare earth magnet, weigh them and do a specific gravity test on each one. The education is worth the effort. Good luck. Peace Roy
