I collected Morgans and Peace dollars for decades so I have seen a lot of problem coins in all those years. I have found that if the cartwheeling isn't present it is likely due to one of two things- 1. the coin was struck on a dull planchet with fatigued dies, which often produces a dull looking coin that doesn't 'flash' when you roll it under a light. or 2. the coin was dipped so many times, or improperly for too long of a time, that the original mint luster has been eroded away by the chemicals leaving an unnatural dullish look. Even toned you should be able to tell which under a 10X jewelr's loupe so take a peek and tell us what you see...
