    That Morgan is really beat up! It's got nice luster, but it's really beat up! I'm guessing (assuming no details grade) an MS61 or an AU53.

    The Kennedy, I'm guessing a 62-63?

    I was thinking more '63 on the Morgan......got's a feeling it's more of the angle on the photo, showing up more 'chatter' than what would be perceived in hand. '64 on the Kennedy.......

    Sort of perplexed why you submitted the Kennedy?

    jwitten and physics fan guessed it. The reason I submitted the Kennedy is pretty much in the title. I'm new to this and was thinking it would get a 66, but now I know that was never going to happen. What's interesting is this Morgan got a 63 and the 1900-s got a 62, but to my eyes the 62 looked way better.

    I gotta be honest... I looked up the results since you posted your other coins already with the submission numbers.... hehe

    Lol, I didn't even know you could do that. It shows every coin from my submission?

    Edit: I see what you did. You just incremented (or decremented) the cert number!

    My guess was 64-Morgan, 62Kennedy. Kinda surprised

    Compare the luster on this Morgan to the other one. This one is far more lustrous. Also, compare the amount of fine tickmarks, scrapes, and dings on this one to the other one - this one is much cleaner.

    I agree about the luster, but I'm just not seeing it on the surface preservation. IMG_2184.JPG
