1880 CC Morgan – purchased as part of a larger collection in Spring or 2017.

  • I had the coin verified (via digital photo) by a couple of trusted dealer\friends
  • Grade expected is in the MS63 – MS64 range
  • I personally expected MS64
  • Obverse is bag marked on the cheek and neck of Liberty, however the fields are very clean, There is a spot in the field between the back of Liberty’s head and NUM of UNUM that I believed to be film\toning\spotting,  but was concerned that it would easily be mistaken as cleaning…I hoped for the best here.
  • There is some very subtle obverse perimeter toning from 8 o’clock to 12 o’clock
  • The reverse is very clean. well struck with less bag marks than the obverse

 

1891 CC Morgan – purchased as part of a larger collection in Spring or 2017.

  • This coin is a VAM 3 Spitting Eagle variety as evident by the blob just out side the eagles beak, making it look like the eagle is spitting
  • I had the coin verified (via digital photo) by a couple of trusted dealer\friends
  • Grade expected is in the MS62 – MS63
  • I Personally expected an MS62, but felt there was a chance this coin would come back AU 58 because of what looks like wear\friction\roll friction on the eagles breast feathers
  • Obverse is more bag marked in the fields and on Liberty’s cheek than the 1880
  • Reverse is bag marked as well with some toning\carbon spots on the right half of the coin
  • Over all the coin seems to be well struck

 

1932 Washington Quarter – Purchased in a FaceBook coin group from a very trusted dealer\fb friend

  • Coin spears to be Gem UNC – Possible MS66 (I suspect MS65 will be given)
  • Obverse fields are VERY clean – Some VERY light bag marks (VERY SMALL) on the bust if looked at thorugh loupe
  • Obverse has some very attractive brown\lavender toning, most likely from album
  • Obverse is well struck
  • Revers is VERY clean, little weaker strike, breast feathers not as strong as they could be
  • Ding on the Eagles Right (viewers perspective) wing

 

 

1934 Washington Quarter Medium Motto – Purchased in a FaceBook coin group from a very trusted dealer\fb friend

  • Coin appears to be Gem Unc
  • Possible MS66 (I suspect I’ll get MS 65)
  • Well Struck obverse, reverse seems to be weaker in strike
  • The first thing that hits you about this coin is that the obverse fields are VERY clean
  • Coin has obverse perimeter toning (possibly from album). Toning is darker in color, giving the coin a golden hue.
  • There are some less visible hits to Washington’s cheek and neck that I believed would prevent it from going higher that 65. These hits are not really visible without loupe.
  • Reverse has some very light subtle toning around the permieter, but not easily seen. No obvious marks
