    Screenshot_20200617-163838_Blue.jpg Well it's got a clash. :)

    Pictures out of the holder would help us out.

    Heck of a coin for the price of a couple of quick lunches. :)

    I'm just now seeing that, sweet! And I'll get pictures later out of the holder.

    Nice. Is that a die crack through middle of 88to7 in the date?

    Looks like a very nice Morgan dollar! There is also a vertical clash mark leading up in between "IN" and "GOD" on the reverse. Looks like a very nice coin.

    Usually when those reverse clashes are so strong then they are also on the obverse. I believe I see it there right at the crease of where her neck meets her underchin.

    And look in front of her lower lip.

    I would agree with you on this coin.

    It’s hard to tell from your pic.... but take a closer look at the top of the 7.

    Do you think it may be repunched or doubled?

    I hate to be a wet blanket, but it looks cleaned in the second obverse picture.

    Yes, why I asked for a pic out of the holder. There are horizontal lines, not sure if they are on the coin or the holder.

    I'd say you did well. '87 Morgans are usually kind of weakly struck and have low luster with kind of a slippery look to the surface. That doesn't appear to be the case with yours. Looks like an AU53, worth about half again what you paid. Nice.

    Here's where a single picture isn't working. Hairlines from cleaning often hide until the light is just right, then they pop out at you. Tip and twirl this coin around in the light. Light it the way it's lit in the picture that caused me concern. This is how you should initially look at every coin you might buy. Actually, also look at certified problem coins this way, too, so that you can learn what the grading services see.
