The image is good enough to determine it's counterfeit.

If the sellers story is true so be it, god bless him for his sacrifice. It doesn't meet the diagnostic test, the easiest Morgan to authenticate. Tough to make the call if it's an added S or a cast fake all together.

The "3" in 1893 doesn't look very crisp. It also doesn't line up correctly...I am going with altered date.

It looks fake to me. If it is real its surfaces have been altered to the point where the coin looks like a caricature instead of the real thing. The die work just does not look right.

With this date n mm, all I look at is the position of the 1. As we all know one die was used for the obverse, the 1 is in the wrong spot.

No near dates with this date and MM.

 

Looks a lot like Vamworlds images of an altered 1883 coin.

Consider: The "seller" had time and resources to collect several quotations about 1893-S dollars, but completely missed basic authenticity. The entire story is another of the "Grandfather Gave it to Me" or "Family Heirloom" genre of lie.

Yep. Nine out of ten times you hear that, something is amiss. I always roll my eyes when I see that.
