heyo. while recently just relooking over my coins, ive come back over my 1890-O Morgan dollar. ive actually recently found out that there are MS and Proof like coins that have been struck with horrible conditions. my coin seems to fit the ill, but im wanting further confirmation.
horridly struck proof-like or polished?
Hard to say from the photos, and understandable, unless there's breast feather detail on the eagle, it's an au or ef looking at the other detail for comparison. As for an ms and ms proof-like, those falling under the latter would exhibit sharper detail as compared to a like grade specimen. Sometimes, but not always, the overall luster is also much "brighter".1 month ago
