Today we are going to look at the 1894 P Morgan Silver Dollar Coin with
a mintage of 110,972. The 1894 Morgan in just about any grade produces a premium.
This mades it a good canidate to be altered.
The best & easier way to alter this coin, would be to take a 1894 o coin and remove the
the mint mark. Look for tell tale signs of electric eraser in the area of the mint mark. The eraser would be used to polish the area. A high intensity light can be an aid in the detection of this process.
On another note, mostly all the New Orlean minted coins in the later part of the 1800's had very light strike. The breast feathers on the Eagle will be light and the obverse will have very wide and flat strike line around the ear and hair lines.
The color of the aloyed used in making the New Orleans strike, showed that the coins was very different. They would show a white silver cast instead of a chrome silver color like the coins for the San Franciso and Philedhia mints.
