Morgan Dollar Grading Question
2 2

Hi all. I was recently going through my collection and trying to put a general grade on some of my nicer coins. I found this nice 1921 P Morgan Dollar and I'm just wondering what your opinion is on the grade. I'm thinking high 50s to low 60s. There are a few small scratches, but it has very sharp details.

EF. Too much wear for any sort of real AU grade.

Where is the wear? I was looking hard to see if it was really AU or MS. If there is wear in the hair it’s minimal.

Wingtips also don’t show wear that I see.

I used the op's photos and circled what I see as wear, however these photos are out of wack for the white balance so with a different set of photos it may appear differently

Sam - I agree the pictures aren’t the best. Any way you can post some more?

Welcome to the forum. I am learning to grade and it sure is complex. I see some marks something about the strike and just a feeling. It sure is a nice addition to your collection, a new old re-discovery. Thanks for posting and we look forward to seeing updated pictures. For now AU maybe ams60 I hope so.

Much better pictures. It should show us all just different minor changes can make in a picture of a coin. It can look like many different coins. 
 

Completely agree it’s AU but it’s also harshly cleaned. It wouldn’t straight grade. Certainly not one worth grading. 1921s are too common and with AU details it’s essentially worth silver price.

1921 is the ugliest Morgan of the series

How many does this make this week?  I counted four today alone.  Sleepy Hollow is getting awfully popular.  Maybe it was the Covid?    :roflmao:
