i think the coin is fake, i was told by a reputable dealer before that one way to look at a coin is to check its surface if its "bubbly" or "grainy"... how about trying a magnet, if it sticks, its definitely fake.. but then the best way to check is really weighing the coin...

Fake Looks 20 Gramm instead of 26. Long time not seen such cheap copy. Some years ago a friend bought me some from angeles 30 peso each. They looked excatly the same. Check the wight..

I agree w/ the 2 earlier opinions. I own 20+ Morgans and none look anywhere near this coin, the rims is a dead giveaway. Likewise, the surface ( as seen on the photo) looks "grainy". This is generally the surface of cheap fakes made in China coins i've seen. Just my 2cents.

Original po ba ito? May coin collector kasi na ngsabi fake dw ito base sa kanyang color. Actually po i cleaned it with metal polished kya sya naging ganito ka mdyo shiny. ngyeyelow po ito kpag d ko nililinisan. nilagay ko ito sa acido nung una at bumalik sya sa pgkaputi nya pro my kaunting yellow pa rin. Help po sa mga marunong tumingin dyan.
