    My best guess from those (difficult to read) images is AU55-58. Liberty's cheek and the eagle's breast both appear as if they might have light wear.

    Nice toning, the coin has some light wear, I would say AU50-AU55.

    With the small photo I agree AU. but with a closeup it maybe MS.

    I think the eagle's breast has too much wear to be AU. Im gonna go with XF45-AU slider

    Id say au-55. Hope u didn't pay MS money for that coin. I collect Morgan dollars and know for a fact true MS 1886-o are very scarce. Most of the "MS" examples are really "AU" I see it on ebay all the time with sellers overgrading AU coins by calling them MS-xx. Big price difference between the two.

    AU55 at best.
    I'd say AU50
    The hair and the eagle's breast have a good amount of wear, and the toning isn't that attractive, but that is just my opinion.

    when i get it i will put up better pictures. i dont think you can see the back good enough to see if the brest worn or not. i bought the coin by front picture which looked ms to me, hope the back is just as good as front. i have seen ms coins graded by pcgs that had alot of coin marks on them. the front of this coin looks pretty good to me but will know in acouple of days.

    As is often noted, grading from a photo is not very authoritative, you need to hold the coin, turn it this way and that, look at the details from different angles, from the photo I would call it a low xf, but that could only be the fault of the picture, or perhaps my puter screen needs to be windexed?

    In a gloved hand is the best way to grade any coin.:kewl:

    No the coin isn't a MS coin. AU is as good as it gets with the coins pictured.

    Yep I still say around AU55, from the second pics it looks like it may have been artificially toned as well.

    I agree with the low AU club. The obv toning is nice but the reverse looks like smoke toning like when someone AT's the coin with a cigar (I'm smoking one right now so maybe I just have cigar on the brain :bigeyes:)
    Nice coin regardless for a low mintage coin.

    1886 New Orleans I had a few graded that look much like this 1886. some were MS-61 & AU58.
    but the wear on the cheek & breast fathers is there so AU-55 or if your lucky Au-58
