@longshot I don't see s or cc marking plus it is very crisp and got shiny surface. Camera did a terrible job of capturing the shine.
Or polished to death.
I checked the mint mark area with microscope and I don't see any signs of tempering.
More photos of coin with luster.
No mintmark means Philadelphia mint
thanks for the info.
I would say value is probably $100-$125 or so.
The strike would be a ton better and the rims would have a more square appearance. They only minted 250 proof 1878 Morgan's with 7TF reverse. I don't know for sure...but I highly doubt what that low of a mintage and the care that proofs are made with they would have used a reverse die with a crack like that. I'm not an expert in Morgan proofs...but I just don't see that happening with a first year proof design with such a low mintage.
It's not a bad coin. It's nearly 150 years old. They get dinged up.
