    Any thoughts on this coin?
    It just looks a little bit shiny for a 134 year old coin.
    Maybe fake? But it's not a special year or anything, I'd think if they were going to fake a coin they would fake a rare one. I've compared it to the one Morgan I have, and pictures online, and it looks correct to me..

    I didn't think so, but I'm not used to buying old coins and it just looks so sharp and shiny compared to the other coins in a similar price range so just cautious.
    Your opinion's good enough for me. I swore that I wasn't going to buy anymore.
    Oops.

    It's on ebay, so I couldn't really do precise measurements, But it looks pretty good, the seller has 30 day return and there is paypal protection, so I figured it was worth a crack and brought it.
    Will be one of the nicer things I have. :D
