1890 Morgan Dollar CC worth to buy?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at picking this coin up at auction tomorrow, and know the rough price guidelines, but am not familiar on where I should rate this coin in this condition between circulated and uncirculated. Am I right at looking at a purchase price at around US$50? There seems to be a big difference in worth from one end of the scale to the other.


Edit: I just noticed the top of right wing of eagle near end of wreath looks like some sort of error, is this a known variant?


Edit 2: I know I'm talking to myself at this stage, but Die Polishing? Would this increase the value of the coin in this case for any reason?


Thanks for your help

I can't comment on the first question, but on the second question - the lines on this piece are from cleaning, though it seems light enough that it's not too bad.


I would generally avoid any piece where you are unable to fully examine it (in this case, the edge), especially for more expensive pieces.
