1903 Morgan grade opinions.

This coin was a wedding gift to my Mom and late Father 48 years ago. When I was telling my mom about my coin collection one day, she remembered about this and said I could have it. It sat in a plastic bag wrapped in a piece of cloth. Anyways, what do you think it would grade out of curiosity? Mom would be thrilled to see it in a graded capsule. Dont care if it costs more than its worth. Thanks for any opinions!!

    I wonder if you can get PCGS to give it a special label

    I *think you can have it sent in for authentication and put into a holder without grading it.

    There is a submission / request box before you hit submit in the online application. Might need to call pcgs to confirm.

    F-VF, harshly cleaned. If all you want is to have it in a holder send it to ANACS and request a details grade. This should cost you less than sending it to one of the other TPGs. The coin has sentimental value but not much numismatic value.

    All glory is fleeting.

    It’s a nice memento! I agree with VF details and polished. You can buy a little plastic holder for it or get a 2x2 and write a label on it. I wouldn’t spend the extra money when it will come back in a details holder, but that’s obviously up to you.

    Thanks for all the responses guys! It sucks it wouldn't straight grade. I may hold off on sending it in. I think ill put it in a air-tite and call it a day. Something ill keep forever. Once again, thanks!!
