I hope it's okay with you guys to have all these Morgan GTG.
I think it's fun.
I haven't purchased a new camera lens so these images will just have to do.

    I'm on the fence of 63/64, I'll go with 63 due to the black mark on the wing.

    I'll give my answer soon. You guys are to sharp to keep it going.
    I will tell you this much.
    I bought it because it's semi-pl. The reverse is definetly PL.

    I was just about to post MS-64 Semi-PL before reading your last post. I detected some device & field luster contrast in the obverse photo.

    Nice well struck example. Note the well-struck wreath leaves on the reverse.

    I like to cherry-pick 1921 SPL Morgans, especially since they are so common in MS, scarce in PL & rare in DMPL.

    It’s great when you can find one that’s a near miss for either the PL or DMPL designation.

    I see it as a 64. Couldn't say pl from these pics. Still, nice coin.

    I'd guess 64 on that one. Nice coin!

    Looks like a solid 64

    The sellers image are what drew me in. It does have reflective surfaces when turned into the light.
    Anyway I could have returned it but I like it so I kept it.

    Based on your last comment, it would seem that you may not have been completely convinced when you saw the coin in person, as to whether or not to keep it.

    I'm presuming because the reflectivity in person did not seem as impressive as in the auction photos.

    Here’s a case you wouldn’t use the sellers image.

    You are 100% correct. The reverse is dedinetly PL and the obverse semi-pl therefore it would be deemed as graded properly.
    I still like the coin so in the box it goes.
