1878-P 7TF REVERSE of 1879-P Morgan slanted tail feather

#1 Unread post by rparker1866 »

i bought this for 211 bucks. i think i paid to much. i thought i was bidding on a 85-s got mixed up.
i can send it back.

it looks to be a slanted tail feather. on usa coin book has this at 2200 bucks for a ms-65. if i compare it a couple of my graded ms-65 coins it looks to be that good


but id like to now what think it worth just for knowledge of it.

thanks

Definitely get your money back. To me the pic of the OBV make it look like the front had too much E-Z-EST applied to it has a lifeless and shallow color to it. Typically this is called dipping, but I don;t think the coin was physically dipped as the REV is not as "bleached" looking as the OBV. It also has too many surface marks to be MS65 IMO.
