You may not like the total coin, but I believe if you're objective you'll determine that coin to be at least MS61. I can go on eBay virtually any time and probably find a MS62 - MS63 NGC or PCGS with bad toning and WEAR on the breast/hair. Please go and look.
In my opinion ANACS was one of the better original TPG. I can no longer assess grading qualities of any TPG since it appears there are no uniform grading standards.
I second the dipping
That coin is also dipped with a secondary toning but the luster looks good, I could see that getting a gem grade, it looks much nicer than the OP coin.
That said, buy the coin, not the holder.
Compared to the 1886 Morgan it looks just like that. MS61 seems to be the net grade for a dipped MS63/64.
Unfortunately, most of what’s left in the old holders is the stuff that won’t upgrade today or were overgraded. I’ve seen too many coins with ugly altered surfaces in old straight-grade ANACS slabs to blindly trust them. And that is much of what’s left in those slabs
Hence, buy the coin, not the slab.
I own several of the old ANACS graded Morgans, and when I bought them in the 90s they were all brilliant surfaces. The material in the label tends to harshly tone silver coins over time and they are still toning today.
agree, to me a 65 or better imo
yah saw one coin jump like 8 points from 58 to 66 two sellers in one month. Saw it a few days ago
