    Wow.... that is amazing.... imagine being the buyer of number two and getting number one (yep, I know, same coin)....the people who pay for tarnish would/should be outraged. Cheers, RickO

    I think this is the case of neither of the images being flattering.

    To me it seems like it might be a negative eye appeal coin regardless of which set of images is more accurate, but I will admit that the GC images evoke a likely much more realistic appearance, in my opinion.

    Hi All. So I'm mostly just a lurker here (maybe that will change), and I'm wondering how he got the coin to flip around in the holder. I know you can do it by whacking the holder in a circular motion against something (table, etc.), but wouldn't you have gone all the way to correctly orientate it in the holder? Just another thing that makes you go Hmmm...

    And here's my version of the coin to match the seller's version. Photoshop, cranked the saturation to +72 (just picked a random number on the slider)
    , and viola! A monster toned Morgan. Difference between his and mine is he didn't take the time to not over saturate the holder (label).

    Seller's like this should be banned.

    Oh, and it was the GC image I modified. Makes it convenient for him. He can modify the GC image to see if the coin will 'tone' the way he wants it before he buys it.

    Tang... If it's good enough for astronauts on the moon, it's good enough on Morgans.

    It didn't flip. It rotated.
