Hello all, pretty new to silver stacking or collecting and I saw this in a big pile of coins at my local coin shop. Was wondering if its anything special? Not to much information on this, at first didnt really notice it didn't say .999 fine or anything of the sort (which for me is kind of a negative). Any information would be appreciated and thanks for letting me aboard!

No mintage figures are available for 1964 either.....

I would certainly try testing it for authenticity.

There was a silver clad version produced by some company and had "cook islands" next to the wing which I cannot see on yours.

Howdy!  I see you are in Florida.  Selling "copies" of a US minted coin in the US without the normal caveats ("copy" ".999 silver" etc) is technically illegal.  I don't see any of these on your coin.  It also has the classic markings of a genuine Morgan Dollar, which is also suspect.  My advise when this happens:  if you walk away, you will not lose any money or get into trouble trying to sell a counterfeit down the road (or a "perceived" counterfeit).  🙂   The Morgan was last minted in 1921, and there were prototypes from 1964 that are tightly controlled (the US Mint was considering one last mintage of a .900 silver dollar).  Thanks from Scotty at CoinFinders

Not to put a too fine point on this:  if this was an actual 1964 Morgan Dollar that somehow legally made it's way out of the US Mint, the coin dealer you visited would not have this in his junk box.  This would easily be a 6-figure coin.

Could it be a Danial Carr coin made in Denver? He has made lots of coins like a 1908-o morgan and a 1931 standing liberty quarter. He also made a 1964 peace dollar. As no U.S. coins were made in those years it is legal for them to be made and sold. He bought a old coin press from the denver mint. Google Danial Carr for more info.

Do a s.g. test if you want to know if it is silver.  Basically weigh normally in air then in water and divide the weight in air by the weight in air minus weight in water.  You can look up specific gravity test for coins for full details and some methods along with figures for different grades of silver and gold.
