What do you think this Morgan will get for a grade?

I am preparing so send in a few coins for grading.
This coin is beautiful
Great luster, mirror surfaces and a beautiful cheek.
I say it's at a minimum PL, could be DMPL (I hope).
I took some additional image. I can read words from 6 inches away.
What do you think it will grade?

    I'll take your word for PL, I think 65(+) would be a fair grade.

    Too weakly struck to get a really high grade.

    Pictures aren't good enough to assess but I don't see DMPL. It may not even be PL if the mirrors are as incomplete as they appear in the photos.

    That leaves me with a WAG of 64+.

    Based on the images provided (and not the commentary on the coin), my guess would be MS64+, non-PL.

    A couple freehand shots to show the black and white.

    Still not sure on the PL. I’ve got some nice looking non-PLs that when I look at them by themselves I’m convinced deserve the designation…then I put them next to ones graded PL and am no longer convinced. Not saying that’s your coin, but the pics don’t convince me.
    I wouldn’t be surprised to see it get a 65, though.

    Your photos have improved remarkably!
    The first photos are excellent in my opinion.
    The freehand pics, though lacking sharpness and control, do show possible PL qualities well.
    I’m guessing 65 PL is possible.

    I would go MS-64+. There are too many marks in the field to get a really high grade.

    65; no PL or DMPL.

    I like that as a straight up MS-65 as a minimum. It has a semi-pl, almost, but not quite PL look IMO just from the photos. You can see the polishing marks, and it could very well be PL. The eye appeal and relatively nice cheek might get you a 66 here.

    I think 65+, it will get the + vs the PL. If the graders go with a PL then a straight 65PL no +, that is what I think.

    64 maybe 65, not quite PL.

    65+, no PL, shot-66

  • willywilly Posts: 284 ✭✭✭✭✭

    MS68+ PL USB would be my guess

  • DennisHDennisH Posts: 13,963 ✭✭✭✭✭


    When in doubt, don't.
  • fathomfathom Posts: 1,513 ✭✭✭✭✭

    65 no PL

    Nice coin.

  • mattnissmattniss Posts: 578 ✭✭✭✭

    Based on the pictures, I'd lean towards this coin making 65. It does have a weak strike which is why it also wouldn't shock me to see this coin end up as a 64+. Doesn't have it for the PL IMO.
