A member of a numismatic forum that I belong to posted this recent acquisition of his. I think the coin is so beautiful that it deserves to be shared with everybody. The colors are a result of toning /oxidation. This is the chemical process of silver reacting with the elements. I happens over time, sometimes the results are beautiful, other times putrid, in this case, it is the former. The coin is uncirculated (NGC-MS62). The contact marks are typical for a Morgan dollar of that era since most were stored in bags and clashed with one another. Morgan dollars are graded on a very specific grading scale , so it is permissable for uncirculated coins to have bag marks. here it is. Note the -O- mint mark for the New Orleans Mint on the reverse above -DOLLAR- Your thoughts?
