    The impaired luster makes me lean to MS62.

    It's between MS63-MS64. Since it's a Morgan, I'll go with MS64.

    63...but given it's provenance may be 64 (or more). Luster, while maybe not "blast white," looks good to me...lighting mutes it.

    I based my opinion of MS 62 using Coin World's "Making The Grade" definition.
    "Uncirculated. Numerous contact marks on cheek, neck, and fields but none that are heavy or disfiguring. Luster is original, strike is sharp".
    My question is, how many is "numerous"?

    63 here, but I will only guess once.

    Must have had a connection problem?
    We read your guess. Multiple times :D usually it's me with the internet problems.

    I think this coin is a 64 but maybe 63. I really like it but I'm not too picky.

    Looks like it is right between grades. Based on the usual bagmarks, I will go 63. I don’t think its provenance is sufficient to bring it up much higher. Nice coin.

    Well I agree with most of you.. I place her at a 63 63+.. the grade they gave her however I think a bit low...
