    I've never seen a proof Morgan in person so could you veteran collectors tell me if this is a proof or not?
    It is on eBay. This is the title of the listing.


    1897 **LOOKS LIKE A PROOF ** DMPL PQ GEM CHOICE BU + Morgan Silver Dollar GEM NR

    How can you tell? I hunt thru raw Morgans pretty often & I would like to know how to tell the difference. I've looked at photos to compare, but most proofs I see are more buisness strike like in my opinion.

    Could someone please tell me how to tell the difference?

    Thank you

    I know this seller. They're not that far from where I live.

    They wouldn't know a PL Morgan if it had been sitting next to them on a park bench at lunch time. More likely juiced the pics to make it appear it was a PL, when in actuality, it isn't.
