    Is the twist that there are three Morgans to grade? No.
    Is the twist something in this line***? No.
    Is there really a twist? I don't know or do I? :eek: :p :)

    Please guess:

    Feel free to also comment on which one you all think deserves the highest grade.

    My guess is that if the obverse of 2 was with the reverse of 3, I would really like that best.

    We all have different tastes, but my guess is that the reverse of #2 would be chosen by most as the best. That one has another photo:

    True, but I like it more subtle in this case. That one ^^ is a monster tone, yet I am not in love with the way the colors lay down.

    Even though the toning is not my preference, I think 2 got a bump up in grade for it and it would not surprise me to see it in a 65* or 66-66* slab. And overall, it probably does deserve the highest grade of the three. Both 1 and 2 have obverses that may hold them back.

    The twist is that the coin with the most focal distraction is graded the highest.
    Sometimes the contact is less visible to the eye, but really pops out in a photo.
