    OP- look what else the seller has listed.

    https://m.bonanza.com/listings/1916-D-Mercury-Dime/661940625

    A 1916-D Dime for $500!!!

    I can't say for certain about the coin in the OP since I don't know Morgan's, but guess what? I can tell you with 99.9% certainty this Dime is fake. That should give you an idea about the coin in the OP.

    Also, note the [edited] in the profile photo flashing the cash he probably took from his mom's purse, thinking he's all cool/gangster/hard. Yeah, just the image you want to represent while attempting to sell obvious counterfeit coins you bought off Aliexpress to unsuspecting buyers. Let's hope the loser eats more Tide pods and stops polluting the gene pool [edited the rest of this commentary, which did not quite cross the line, but skated very close to the edge. Even if these descriptions happened to have been accurate, they had to be toned down, as I hope you will understand. ~Moderator]

    Indeed. This one took me less than a second to to notice it looked "off". Others are trickier.

    It almost certainly isn't cast. Casting fakes pretty much went the way of the Dodo over a decade ago. Almost every fake I've seen for a LONG time has been die struck.
