Trying to verify if this 1881 CC Morgan Silver Dollar is genuine ?

To those that know their Silver Morgan Dollars

I am interested in your thoughts and opinion on the following 1881 CC Silver Morgan Dollar. I can’t quite be certain about it’s authenticity and unfortunately have no scale to weigh it accurately. Based on the pictures, what do you think?

Thank you for looking and thank you in advance.

It looks genuine but it has also been harshly cleaned which would greatly devaluate it.
If you were to send it in for grading, it would probably come back as “ Details cleaned”.

Agreed with the above comments. The L in "Pluribus" looks weird, but could be a die issue. Also, considering the amount of wear, I would expect the tips of the Eagles wings to show significant wear as well.....
Start with the basics and go from there.
Weight should be 26.73 grams,38 millimetres in diameter & non-magnetic surface of course....
Good Luck

After more examination & consultation with some other Morgan collectors, the consensus is that it's a China replica.
based on your best photo's.... Mind you, photo's can never substitute " coin in hand" examination....Curious to know the result...please post either way to help other collectors.
Although not Canadian content, a refreshing post nevertheless.
Thanks for posting
