The neck on this cowboy coin is strange looking.

Nobody seems to know what would cause it to look like that.

I can find a "cut throat Morgan" reference on Google in Pinterest but don't have or want a Pinterest account.

Anyone know what it could be other than an oddity?

FWIW, it does not look like PMD to me.

If that's the pic you posted on CU, I can understand why they were stumped.

Looks like a contact mark.

Here's a different one.

I think it is a rare variety that will be worth millions.

Rollo---If you can get a VAM number assigned for this coin it will become a recognized variety. There should be a way to contact VAM (Van Allen, Maris) to arrange for them to inspect this coin.

I don't think it is a contact mark.

Having a Morgan VAM named after Rollo would be fuddernutter hysterical.

The VAM named after Rollo would be "pain in the neck VAM"

It's almost got to be post mint damage.
I can't figure out a feasible way for that to happen otherwise.

It might be a chip in one of the working hubs.

That would make more than one, I'd think.

True. If it's a true variety there may be other examples out there.

Just posted on CU

Okay, as promised, here's the followup and "rest of the story."
The picture I posted was from the website offering the coin.

At the time, I ordered it on a speculation that there could be something new to be discovered.
Also I did not have the actual coin in possession when I started the thread, but I did have it paid for and was waiting to see it in hand before posting further photos or observations.

There was nothing different from any other Morgan dollar. I have no idea how that photo got to look like it did.

It was MS67 and CAC approved.

The coin was also more marked with contact marks than I expect from a MS67. Had it been just an order for a MS67 coin, I would have returned it in any case just from its not being what....I.... expect in a 67.

I returned the coin for a refund and it is now a past episode. I won't identify the date or provide pix as I am sure it will be offered again and I don't want to influence the dealer's business with ID of a returned item.

That photo sure did "LOOK" like something was amiss on the neck. But.....nope.
A normal Morgan Dollar.
