guess the grade (obv. only)

I found this coin on eBay and just had to share. It's a 1921-P Morgan. It's in a straight-graded TPG holder. The reverse photo was so dismal I didn't even want to try a huge screen blowup and screenshot like I did to get this obverse photo. What is your grade opinion of just this obverse? I'll revel...

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

Woke up this morning to find a "Your Mint Order Has Shipped" email... this one for the CCs and Os, also via UPS Ground. :D

Re: 1892 S VAM?

The area under E and PL in front of Liberty's hair/forehead/nose, and the area between the back of Liberty's head/cap/hair and UM & the two stars show glaring evidence of cleaning lines... and pretty harsh ones at that.

Re: 1888'0' VAM-4 HOT LIPS T100 WOW LIST

You didn't need to post more photos; my suspicion about a possible cleaning is still going to apply. The coin just doesn't have the right "look" to me at first glance, a "look" that I associate with cleaning of some kind. Although, admittedly, it could also be the result of the lighting or equipment...

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

Two of my three orders are also showing as "processing" -- the CC & O, and the D & S. The P and Peace dollars are still showing as "backorder".

Flipping mine directly to PCGS for grading, with original packaging returned. Hopefully they will arrive in time to take delivery at FUN.
Is there any word yet... anything at all... about how PCGS is going to label them?

Re: Sending 2021 Morgans/Peace for grading-

Mine will go to PCGS.
And I just checked my order status... the D & S coins have moved to "processing" from "backordered".

Re: help me NOT send to LVA

This is my coin #47 (D2) (not a whole lot to work with, and I suspect the big chunk in the right opening is Mint debris that will not dislodge when poked with a stick, which I have tried several times):

help me NOT send 1921-Ps to LVA

These are the only four 1921-P coins I couldn't attribute out of a batch of 151. I have been through the various scribbles and die crack guides 3-4 times for each one, as well as looking through Crae and LVA's original scribbles book. My hope is that some of you will be able to identify some or all ...
