Thread: 1880-S Morgan Dollar Strike through ? Defective planchet?

  1. Default 1880-S Morgan Dollar Strike through ? Defective planchet?

    Hello all,

    Especially Mike D.

    I have this Morgan Dollar. It's an 1880-S, Its an MS-67 Proof Like, and she's a beauty. I am trying to figure out what this "damage" area forward of the nose of Miss Liberty is, where the stars meet the rim. To me, under the scope it looks like a pre-strike issue, The star that's close to PUP looks like the damage is below the star. I have two photo's for now that I was able to capture in the correct light without blinding myself or the cameras involved. From these photos, what constitutes a "defective planchet" or, a potential other strike from another coin ? This to me is sort of weird - And I need a bit of assistance on trying to figure out what this is.

    I appreciate all comments !

    Sorry, but your photos fail to show anything that could be construed as abnormal.

    Mike,

    Thank You.

    No reason to be sorry, all is good.

    I am actually kind of relieved that its nothing major. When it comes to the extremely higher grades, people seem to want a problem free coin unless it is something ultra-dramatic.
