There are a lot of Morgan Dollars with textile toning from Mint canvas bags, and even some modern Silver Eagle Dollars now not from Mint canvas bags.

In between, there are some Peace Dollars with textile toning. Were Peace Dollars ever stored in Mint canvas bags to achieve this kind of toning?

1925 Peace Dollar - PCGS MS63

    After nearly 100 years, I guess anything could have been stored in these types of bags. I never thought they left the mint like that, entering bank vaults for years and years like Morgans, but the above post gives me pause.🤔

    What else would they be stored in? I think the issue is they weren't stored as long as Morgans.
    I have one that shows what appears to be textile toning.
    @HasBeen that bag is way cool!

    I guess the real question is at what point did they start rolling silver dollars instead of sending them out in $1,000 bags?
    The bag posted does not appear to be from the treasury and instead looks (from the wording "standard silver dollars") to be private issue.

    Coins weren't / aren't rolled by the mint. This is done after they leave and go to processors like Brinks.

    I have had bags from almost every mint and virtually all denominations.

    I assure you that is a government issues US Mint bag.

    For what it’s worth I have never seen any “classic” coins that were “rolled” at the mint. They’re usually rolled at the Federal Reserve Bank(s), or more likely at a commercial bank.

    Which poses the question: How did they get from the US Mint to the Federal Reserve Banks?

    Answer: bags

    The coolest Peace dollar, or Standard Silver, bag I’ve ever owned was from San Francisco, dated 1934.

    Unfortunately I didn’t think to get a picture of it before I passed stewardship to a fellow collector.
