    They look Fake to me, but i'm no expert.. be nice if they had the weight of the coins on the page 1890 cc the e in liberty looks totally different then other Morgan dollars 1894 o liberty look's totally different.. weak strikes, or impressions 1892 s aka copies of coins...

    I not going to say but an 1890 CC that looks that good an NOT in a PCGS or NGC slab? Raw coins on EBay is risky business.

    I'm no Morgan uber-expert, but I've never seen the reverse Eagle on the third link wear like that while everything else has better detail.

    First one also looks very soft on the obverse but with a stronger reverse.

    They all look incredibly fake- especially the top and bottom ones.

    Top one: Looks like an Aliexpress style fake- the date is wrong (the 2 in "1892" is the giveaway).

    Middle one: Dentils worn off partially on the obverse, "E"is not fully struck. Stars on the obverse are incredibly suspicious as well.

    Bottom one: Strange, uneven wear. The reverse looks cast or struck from a poorly made die.

    In my opinion, all of these coins were either cast, or created from cheaply made dies.

    They're worth no more than melt, even if real. They all look bad, but then I have to wonder what a real one that was polished, then etched in acid to the point that it's 500 mg light would look like.
