    Probably wording incorrectly. Sorry if I am. What do y’all think of these Morgans. I know no where near perfect. Thanks for any input.

    Very hard to see the surface quality and color.
    Look probably AU something . Possibly details

    Yes, the pictures are hard to read,as they don’t capture luster. They look well-circulated to me, most probably AU to me. They are certainly details coins, as they have been cleaned. 1881s is one of the most common Morgan Dollar dates.

    Top one is extra fine, the bottom one is fine. Just my opinion. :)

    Yes I have had these a while from bank. I could kick myself when the lady came in I shared with others to swap out. She had different dates. But hey I was being kind. :)

    Can I post the original one before cropping. I’m not home to take more pics of them right now.

    The angle and exposure are not good enough.

    If AU, likely no better than 50...more EF to me.

    I like them. I prefer coins that worked for a living and still have good eye appeal.

    The top one is an AU and the bottom one is an EF. The 1881-S is common in Mint State and can often be found in excellent conditions, such as MS-64, 65 and even 66. As circulated coins, these pieces are worth a bit over melt, but not by much. There is not much numismatic value here.

    This is confusing me. You got Morgans from your bank? What lady had others?

    These two I had swapped when I worked at the bank. A customer had come in to cash them in. She had many of them and I shared with the others that wanted some. So I had swapped for these two Morgans.I’m sorry. I write how I speak I’m afraid. Cajun lol

    Thank you. Everyone has different opinions. It’s hard to take a good photo. I have taken one more of each. It’s no big deal. I have had these since the 1980s. Still old pretty American coins.
