    Polished. Was probably in a belt buckle at one time.

    Sorry Max, I hit send before I splained, It looks polished or dipped to me, but looks real. What does the reverse like? The same? If you have a look around the stars you can see where it looks dull and around the letters too. This is just my opinion. could have been dipped....

    Wouldn't dip take the shine off and leave a white appearance? The reason I ask is every time I have dipped a silver that is what happens,:oops::(

    Yes it looks the same on back side. I'm guessing the value of it is gone now if someone had polished it. Thanks for the info!

    The coin is destroyed, but find whoever did that and put them to work detailing cars. They could be making good money doing that kind of work on mercedes and beamers. ;)

    Just curious, this "belt buckle thing" is based on what? Do you see evidence of mounting?

    That is about as heavily buffed as I've ever seen it done. Wowser. :)

    I'd keep it for a shaving mirror. :)

    Put that thing in your pocket and wear it down for a few years. That should un-polish it fairly effectively.

    Yup. Super polished. I have one very similar. They can fool very green beginners thinking it might be one of those PL coin they've heard about.

    My first thought was polished also. But maybe this was plated over, like those 1943 replated pennies.

    Most definitely polished.

    It is a genuine 1921 Morgan (common in all mint marks), but OMG-- I have never seen a coin that heavily polished. It almost looks like it had a coating sprayed on. Coin absolutely totaled
