The weight of the coin is - 25+, 30- grams, attracts magnet (with magnet from furniture).
The back side of the coin the eagle has smaller wings, so my question is - that's a fake coin, or with error?
Also the eagle has same sort of "laser" eyes - a line, not scratch.:)
I bougth the coin for 6.5 (approximateli) American dollar.

I regret to say that it is a very poor quality modern counterfeit.

CCG is correct.

Sorry to say, I'm afraid you overpaid by about $7!

Aside from the fact that Morgans are 90% silver/10% copper and totally non-magnetic, the uneven denticles and incorrect artwork are major giveaways.
