    1879 cc obverse.png 1979-cc reverse.png As many of you know, I collect coins on the cheaper side due to a Social Security budget. I have been wanting a CC Morgan dollar but dang, they sure are high dollar. Was able to finally buy one today. I know it isn't a high grade, but for $37.00 shipped, I am happy. Do you think it would at least grade "good"? Go ahead, you won't hurt my feelings. LOL

    Detail-wise, it's a solid VG. I'd say you did well for the price.:)

    Wow, a VG10 CC dollar for $37, I've seen people pay more for less. You got a good deal.

    Good pickup at that price.

    Excellent value, particularly for a scarcer CC.

    My first impression was "fake", but I'm not a Morgan expert.

    The "cc" seems more like a "cC". The inner loop of the "9" seems off, too.

    Mine only cost me $28 a while back. Lol But your 79" is a better year.

    My first thought is why is IGWT so bold but the rest of the letters on the reverse are so weak? The fields on the reverse have a strange color. How much does it weigh?

    I think you’ve got an altered coin.

    I don’t like it. CC is the wrong shape

    Couldn't that be attributed to 'wear'? Looks like it's been hit on quite a bit.

    Holy cow. Hope it isn't fake. Haven't got it in to weigh it yet. Probably is fake with my dumb luck. Thanks for the info guys. I'll take it to a local dealer and have it checked out when I get it in. I'll let you know.

    Somebody sure did go to a lot of trouble to sell me a fake coin for only $37.00. Heck, I would have gone for a lot rarer fake coin than this and ask a lot more. Dang, I hate this. Makes me want to give up the coin collecting I love. Anybody else think it's fake?

    That date and MM in G4 is probably a $100 coin or better all day long...

    I think it's real, but rather banged up. The reverse looks like VAM 3 (probably VAM 3A) -- filled G in God with a gloppy mint mark. The funny bit on the 9 is probably damage, and looking at the rest of the coin, the date was bound to suffer a hit somewhere.
