    @Daulton I am ancient coins collector, but even I can easily tell that modern "Morgan dollar" coin is fake. There's several problems with it, but the most obvious one is the edge reeding is all wrong.

    Also, I don't know the proper term you modern coin collectors use for it, so I'll say it in ancient coins vocabulary.... the fabric of the coin is also weird looking. It just doesn't have that certain reflection I've seen in the fields of genuine Morgan dollars at coin shops.

    Weight is correct, it's non magnetic,
    The weight is correct, it's non magnetic, and it is the right diameter....

    Honestly, weight and diameter only helps to weed out the worst of fakes. Real deceptive fakes are often made of silver and weight the same. You'll especially see it in coins with high numismatic value, but I wouldn't put it past a Chinese faker to do it either for even a more common coin. After all, $15 in silver and a press can make them a coin they can turn around and sell for $75 or $100. Repeat that a couple of hundred times and you have a very lucrative fake business.

    I'm not sure it's fake. I am sure it's polished to death.

    In fact, I wonder if the images I'm seeing are different from the ones everyone else has commented on...?

    I agree that it is details whether fake or not.
