I paid $20.00 for the Morgan and $10.00 for the ASE. An experienced collector knows that these prices are far below silver melt value. So lesson #1 is that if it appears too good to be true, then it is probably bogus. I’ll start with the ASE. A genuine ASE is on the left. This is probably visually the more convincing of the two pieces. The fields of the piece are stunning. That I am sure is a ploy to get you to overlook the flaws. The piece has a medal orientation. Genuine ASE’s are oriented like any other coin. The reverse is fairly convincing however the obverse is a hodgepodge of mistakes. A quick look at the greenery in Lady Liberty’s arm isn’t even close to the genuine ASE. Take a close look at the stars and folds in the flag. It is as though the engraver just gave up. The face of Lady Liberty looks more like a civil war soldier than it does Lady Liberty. And finally the piece is quite magnetic. A few things on the Morgan. This piece is not magnetic however I am confident it is not silver either. I don’t have the equipment to confirm that. Again a genuine Morgan is on the left for comparison. And again the reverse is a bit more convincing than the obverse. And again the obverse is a comedy of mistakes. Numerous errors in the curls of the hair. The nose and jaw are cartoonish. And the spray on toning is worse than a spray on tan. I could go on.... But the main thing I wanted to do is offer a visual side by side comparison for collectors that may not have handled as many of these coins as some others. Do not be fooled by the absurdly cheap prices. And if you are in question.... Before you spend your hard earned cash, ask the crew here at CT. We won’t let you buy junk if we can help it.
