    Please help me to identify this AT Morgan dollar coin if it's genuine or counterfeit?
    I bought this for my son's birthday coming up in a couple of weeks, but I hate this turns out to be a fake coin.

    Thank you in advance !!!

    I agree, the coin looks real but the toning looks artificial to me! :(

    I think it's 99% AT, but want to make sure the coin itself is authentic.

    The mint mark location and size ok?

    Thats supposed to be a MM?
    From your photo it looks like toning.
    You can look at this site it is VAM world.

    Too me that looks like a 83P
    Anyways this site is dedicated to the research of Morgan and peace dollar die pairings.
    Good luck nothing looks wrong to me unless that is a bad photo of an S MM.

    Gotta agree! Although the coin looks real, the mint mark looks really strange!

    the coin might be real but the MM and the toning look bogus. I've never seen a MM on a Morgan that looks like that.
