Yep, those are copies made by the National Collectors Mint, with no real value besides being a neat souvenir. It's clad in silver, but the silver weight is so minimal that you would need some 50 coins like that to get a cent worth of silver.

Thanks! ❤

People have already weighed in with their opinions, so I'll just send my condolences regarding your grandfather. This piece, though not a real Morgan dollar, can surely hold sentimental value.

Also, im pretty sure proofs didn't look quite this shiny/mirrored until about 75 or so years later.

Even lady liberty has a look of skepticism oh her face on this Morgan.

Imagine a real one in that condition It would be worth like 50,000 times face

Here’s a 1889 CC MS64DMPL for $235k. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1889-CC-1-Silver-Morgan-PCGS-MS64DMPL-PQ-Illinois-Set-Deep-Mirror-Proof-Like-/372953537381?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 Given that there is only one graded in 64+ I’d imagine a MS69/70 DMPL would be a seven figure coin easy https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1889-cc-1-dmpl/97191

I hate to be Captain Obvious but it says “COPY” on the back

Saw that CC and I was damn. You rich. Then I saw the copy number 😭😭😢

Yes. It's nice looking though, and was your Grandpa's, so there's some meaning in it regardless of actual value.

I was going to say, that might be the best looking circulation era Morgan I’ve ever seen. Then I saw the back.
