    Feel free to share some low-ballers, regardless of denomination. :phantom:

    If you’re looking for PO1 this poor soul has a ways to go. Let’s see how this thread goes!

    Could be pareidolia but do I see an S mintmark?

    I've been curious about this for a while - is it really a low-baller if you can't determine the mint mark (or lack of)?

    I think it’s going to take 30-40 years of sliding across counter tops to get to low baller. Can you imagine what this coin has done for people and commerce over the past 153 years? The stories it can tell?
    And to think I’ve been focused on flip queens all these years…

    Check PCGS Photo Grade. Because of the jump in price between PO2 and PO1 the TPG’s are rather strict about what a PO1 is. Look at the pop numbers between the two and you will see how many hopefuls have been submitted.

    Whatever, it's still a Morgan and that alone makes it a keeper in my opinion. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks to me like there could be a mint mark there.
