Just wanted to share with TNet a unique specimen. It is in original government packaging. On the obverse at 11 o'clock(LUR in Pluribus is bridged) and 5 o'clock(stars), you will notice die cracks. On the reverse, the letters in TED in United are bridged with a die crack and the letters TATES in States are bridged with a die crack.

Thanks. If you open each image and view them at full size, the other die cracks are apparent. I've enjoyed owning it for 30 years. A new owner will have the opportunity to add it to their collection.

If anyone remembers the original photos and the emphasized die cracks, well, I have it consigned with Sedwick's Treasure Auction that ends in 5 days. The current bid is pretty cheap for a CC Morgan.

That’s a nice Morgan!
Should have it graded by NGC. I love how they grade the coins and leave them as original as possible so they still fit in the original box. PCGS whiffed on their GSA grading, IMO. That bulky plastic case is uglier that a red-headed step child with Covid-19.
