    A coworker asked me to look through some coins he got after his father passed away. I noticed this one and I'm curious is this considered a partial collar error? Does it add value? Thank you in advance.

    Are their fakes made of the same composition as the Morgan's? Wouldn't seem lucrative. I'm no expert but I verified it with a $30,000 spectrometer at work.

    Looks like a Morgan Dollar minted in New Orleans to me, 1898. I don’t see anything that screams fake or partial collar to me.

    Yeah, I'm no Morgan expert, but if this one's a fake, it's several steps above what we normally see posted here. Interesting find!

    It looks normal to me and does look like a partial collar or railroad rim. Cool find

    Thank you everyone. Anyone have any idea if this adds value? I haven't seen many examples with prices except for graded ones.

    Looks good? Partial collar?. It's a two piece coin.

    If authentic, which I think there is a really good chance it is, it would add some value. Not a massive amount but definitely some.

    What kind of work do you do? NASA?
    Why would they have such an expensive piece of equipment?
    What kind of verification was done?

    @paddyman98 , Me thinks he added too many Zeros to that 30 . I'm finding them way lower than that . I had to look what one is . What do I know though . Peace. ;)

    I'm not an expert on Morgans but it looks good to me, and it is a partial collar, and if it is real then yes it will have a premium value but not fantastically high, partial collars on Morgans aren't that rare. In fact is is probably the coin most likely to have a partial collar.

    I'm a machinist. The shop I work at does a lot of aerospace work and sometimes we make parts for NASA. Certain parts require analysis for verification of the material. It's for traceability in case there's ever an issue down the line with a particular part.
