A real one should weigh 26.73 grams (slightly less if well worn). A fake would have a different weight.

A genuine 1795 dollar is silver, but it's not pure silver. The coin is a fake if it's not silver.

No Morgan dollars were struck at the Carson-City Mint in 1886, 1887 or 1888. Any coins with these dates and "CC" mintmarks are fake.

Please check your coin again. Morgan Silver dollars were minted from 1878 to 1904 and in 1921. No Peace dollars were minted in 1932 due to the Great Depression.

If it's a fake, it's worth little to nothing.

First of all, there is no such thing as a 1923 Morgan Dollar. Next, you'd have to evaluate if it's fake or real and go from there. Send it to a reputable grading company.

A few things you can check are the weight it should be 26.73 grams. Also look at the rim of the coin if you see what looks to be a seam it's fake. The best thing to do is take it to a dealer or collector.

Roughly the value of most fakes, essentially nothing.

If it has a motto on the back (the banner saying in god we trust) then its a fake. If its magnetic its fake. If it has a ridge running all the way around the center of the reeded edge the coin it is fake. If the denticles are not all symetrical its fake. Lastly, a real 1843 silver dollar weighs 26.73 grams and has a diameter of 38.1 mm. Anything other than that is a fake.

its fake o silver dollars were made in 1799

Without examining the coin it is impossible to tell if it is genuine or not. But there are legitimate 1921-S (Morgan) dollar coins struck. If you have a Morgan dollar that has the same weight, dimensions and design as known legitimate coins (and the coin doesn't say COPY or REPLICA or anything like that on it), it is most likely genuine. 1921 is an incredibly common date for Morgan Dollars and most counterfeiters won't bother making deceptive counterfeits of it.

Not many fake coins are made from real silver or gold. Take it to a jeweler to be tested, most will do this for you.

Morgan dollars were struck from 1878 to 1904 & for the last time 1921, Peace dollars were struck from 1921 to 1928 and 1934 and 1935. Any MORGAN dollar dated after 1921 IS A FAKE, but it is possible the obverse die the coin was struck with had some type of damage making the last 1 in the 1921 date on the coin look like a 7. This does not add any value to the coin. As of today the Melt Value of the coin is about $20.00.

1887 CC doesn't exist. The Carson City mint only minted Morgan Silver Dollars from 1878 through 1885. After 1885, production ceased, only to later resume production of Morgan Silver Dollars from 1889 through 1893 (the final year). If you're asking because you bought an "1887 CC", then you should know right off the bat it's a fake.

Yes, I have some counterfeit coins, they are used for reference and teaching tool's.

Considering that the 1885 silver dollar coin was a MORGAN silver dollar, not Susan B. Anthony, any 1885 Silver Susan B Anthony Dollar coin would be fake. Ms. Anthony didn't appear on the dollar coin until the US placed her on the dollar coins minted from 1979 to 1981 (with an additional limited run in 1999). All those coins were copper-nickel clad rather than silver. As far as the 1885 Morgan dollar is concerned - it depends on the condition of the coin and the mint it came from; as of 8/8/2016, the value ranged from $24.61 for a coin in good condition with no mintmark (from Philadelphia) or an S mintmark (from San Franciso) to $489 for an uncirculated coin with a CC (Carson City) mintmark.

nothing it's a fakeMoreMorgan dollars (designed by George Morgan, hence the name) were minted from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921. Are you sure you don't have a walking liberty half dollar? They were minted in 1947 but look very different from a Morgan dollar - and in any case they clearly say "half dollar" on the back. If so, please see the Related Question for values.

It would be an extraordinary coin because: > The first Morgan dollars were made in 1878 > The U.S. didn't make any kind of silver dollars for circulation from 1804 to 1835 inclusive. The market has been flooded with counterfeits, some very good and some laughably bad, with impossible dates and designs. If your coin really looks like a Morgan dollar and is dated 1822 it's a fake. If it's something else, please check again and post a new question.

Please check again and post a new question. Silver dollars weren't minted from 1905 to 1920 inclusive. If you have a U.S. $1 coin with that date it's a fake. If you have another denomination coin such as a half-dollar, or a bill from a private bank, please post a new question with more details.
