Label says 64, it’s now a 65 or 65+
She has PL-like surfaces, but it’s not enough to qualify for a PL designation.
I didn’t know. I am just guessing... we’re supposed to guess, right...?
I’m fairly certain that was his guess (he’s guessing the label has a lower grade than what it would get if sent in more recently).
Edit: clarified above
My bad, I thought you meant for sure it is a 64 like you knew because you've seen the coin in hand or something
PCGS pop for 1885-O in MS64: 75,871
Nope, I don’t think I’ve seen this one ;-)
This Morgan has excellent luster and no significant marks, so it sure looks better than your average 64. That’s why I said it may have a shot at 65 nowadays. It’s likely that the chatter on Liberty’s cheek prevented a higher grade.
64 then, 65 today
MS65 is/was my guess before I read any further posts.
It's got enough " stuff " on it to keep it from going much, if any, higher.
BTW, that's a technical term : " stuff ".
Easily, no question 65 (they didn't give Plus back then, but I think 65+ is actually the perfect grade for this coin). I think it has a good shot at 66. That is a remarkably clean cheek, which is often the problem area.
Just to be different 65PL.
65 (at least!).
Probably 65 in OGH holder but 66 if resubmitted. Surfaces not quite PL.
Might be the lighting in the pic, but all the black spots reduce it's eye appeal to me. I do agree that for an O mint Morgan, it has nice luster. Less "satiny" if that makes sense. Nicely struck as you can see some hair definition over the ear. Not usually the case with O mints.
No guess. Nice coin.
I am also at a 65.
MS-65, possibly in 64 since it's an OGH.
