My feelings exactly...
I would think its fake. Looks grainy.
I definitely would not have bought it for any more than $15 but was offered it for $10 at a flea market, figured I may as well take it for the silver content LOL
In that case, nice
Don't compare it to a 1921 Morgan. All the original Morgan dies were destroyed in 1910. The Mint had to make new dies in 1921 by making them from existing coins (similar to what counterfeiters do) and there are differences. The relief is a little shallower on the 1921s, for one thing, especially on Liberty's cheek, which is flatter. There are also other slight, subtle differences. Compare it to some other pre-1921 coin. BTW I agree with your thought about the mushy strike. That sends up a red flag. The star to the right of the word "DOLLAR" looks HORRIBLE. Plus that coin has been cleaned to death. I'd pass.
There's a single berry in the top right leaf cluster, it's to the right of the cluster, in the 1921s, and that's from all Mints. On every other Morgan dollar there are two berries in that cluster, one to the right of it, and one to the left of it. Just another difference...
