  Would really love some opinions on grade of this coin by reverse only. Will show obverse of coin after a few opinions are posted please. And it’s just for fun to all those Debbie downers

Sorry, that doesn’t make sense, as the obverse is weighted far more heavily than the reverse

for purposes of grading. For example, you can have an essentially perfect reverse (let’s say MS68), 

but a beaten up obverse (MS62) and the coin might grade MS62.

I'll play.

The picture is a bit fuzzy, and the lighting is such that it makes it hard to see the surface clearly, but I will give the reverse a 65. I see some rim hits, and a few on the devices.

Pretty coin, though - at least on the reverse.

My opinion is that the color is very dark and the rim looks really banged up or damaged, like from being in a bezel or something and should have received a details grade due to the rim issues.

Man what a breast … hard to find on O mint Morgan's. I would say the reverse is 66 but that means nothing on the actual grade...

Its just for fun. I wish both sides were the same.

And Everybody was about spot on about what I was thinking the rim damage definitely took it’s toll on the coin but still made out with the MS 64
