    I took a shot at this coin as the seller didn't have any other coins listed and I knew their pictures wouldn't do it justice. Ended up being just stunning in hand :)

    Old ANACS Holder.

    Regardless of whatever number a TPG gave it, for me it has ‘the look’. Most appealing Morgan i’ve Seen in a long time.

    Yep, that's a beaut. I went 63 PL. Beautiful luster, I always love gold rim toning, and the many marks are not distracting from the general loveliness of the coin. I'm not sure everyone would judge it prooflike. I think there's a small chance it wasn't graded so. I might just be tired.

    I went 63PL. Normally I like higher grades for Morgans, but this one is a beauty. Might make 64. Nice find :)

    63 PL. Nice coin, with a fair amount of Cameo. A little baggy for a 64 or 65, but a really nice prooflike example.

    63PL....too many dings for a higher grade. IMO
    Nice looking for sure. Is that enough to get a point bump for "possible" market grading??? (if such things exist)...;)

    62 PL

    My grade is based on it being an old Anacs and what looks to be baggy surfaces and cheek area.

    I could see this going 63 PL nowadays, but that is no certainty.

    I voted 62PL which is what I think is on the slab.

    I personally like it at 63PL but I think as @ddddd mentioned. The older holder and many tick marks and few carbon spots landed at 62. I have a 1904-O that had a similar look that Anacs gave 61 due to many tick marks all over the coin.

    I went 63 no pl due to the old holder. I think today it’s 64 pl

    Going to call it! @kSigSteve @ddddd got it at 62 PL.i think it got brought down for the carbon spots, but it's one of the cleanest cheeks I own!

    I think I got lucky even at that grade. I made an offer and bought this for $67 after shipping.

    Nice coin. 62-63 PL is right on, and it is an attractive coin. Price is quite right.
