This is my first GTG :)
I'm thinking about sending it to our host and wanted some opinions from the forum.
Plus there has been a couple of interesting GTG for Peace dollars recently. ;)

    There isn't wear that I see...
    I'd say shot at 64.
    Not gonna lie, I'd hit that with a q-tip of MS70 to get the crud off.

    63 for me.


    No one has ever had a plan to lose money in numismatics, monies lost is a result of not having a plan.

    Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.

    IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER ABOUT EBAY SELLERS, THE PRICE THEY ASK FOR IS WHAT THEY WANT, NOT WHAT THEY WILL TAKE, SO MAKE AN OFFER.

    Might be the difference between a 63 and 64.
    I'd still lean towards the 64 side, though pcgs often reminds me that I'm usually a point off.

    MS66 taste on an MS63 budget.

    For me the reverse holds it to a max 63. I am not seeing any wear.

  • JRoccoJRocco Posts: 14,066 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Nice coin.
    My eyes see a 64 but our hosts might see 63.
    Of course they would be wrong and I would be right ;)

    Some coins are just plain "Interesting"
  • I also like it and believe 63-64 range based on pics.

    62- the reverse bag marks are just too distracting for me to consider a higher grade - The bag marks at and between the U and R of PLURIBUS combined with the other bag marks in the field and rays to the right of the eagle hurt my grade analysis.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

  • jedmjedm Posts: 2,068 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm with the 63 crowd here. I'm not seeing wear, but the cheek shows a bit of scuffing in a prime focal area, and the reverse has some contact marks.
    I like peace dollars too!

    I've seen PCGS MS67 coins with notable reeding marks, so you may be weighting them more than our host does.

    63 congrats!

    Hi, I (have been told) that I'm not a grader, so I won't, but I like your Peace Dollar. I like the Obverse better than the Reverse.

    Liberty hair is flowing and look great. The reverse ha those pits between the U and the R that make me focus there, but all in all should grade well. Good luck, Joe

  • ifthevamzarockinifthevamzarockin Posts: 3,527 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @Joe_360
    You don't need to be a grader to take a guess. ;)
    A guess the grade (GTG) is exactly that a guess.
    The coin is graded already, I am just trying to decide if I should have it regraded.
    I will reveal the grade in a bit.

  • MasonGMasonG Posts: 1,908 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Guess? Ok. MS62.

  • Joe_360Joe_360 Posts: 317 ✭✭✭

    GTG, MS64, but may have kame in at 63..

  • MartinMartin Posts: 161 ✭✭✭

    I think their hard on the 27s. I’m going with 63. I think the coin doubles in value in a 64. And then doubles in 65 again. I sent one in a few years ago it came back a grade lower than I thought. It came Back in a 63 holder. I would peg yours at 64
    By the pics

  • ifthevamzarockinifthevamzarockin Posts: 3,527 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for all the responses! :)

    Any last minute guesses?

    Grade reveal coming soon. :)

  • ShaunBC5ShaunBC5 Posts: 714 ✭✭✭✭✭

    First thought was 63. Sticking with it...so what is it???

  • ifthevamzarockinifthevamzarockin Posts: 3,527 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for playing! :)

    The AU 50 you posted doesn't even closely compare with the OP's coin.
    I urge you to take a closer look and compare the high points on the two coins.

  • ifthevamzarockinifthevamzarockin Posts: 3,527 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I think this shows we have some very good eyes here on the board. :)

    I think the coin is solid at a 63 with a shot at a 64 on a good day.
    A quick dip or a little MS70 might give it a better shot.
    The reverse has a few too many hits.

    "pcgs often reminds me that I'm usually a point off."
    Yep, same here. :D
    Think I'm gonna save the money and keep it as is. ;)

    Damn, missed the party ... as soon as I looked though I thought 63, worst case 62 at PCGS

    I was late as well but I think it's closer to a 64.

  • rickoricko Posts: 79,051 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Late again... but 63 was my guess when opening the thread....Cheers, RickO

    I am glad that I do not pursue Peace dollars because those pits on the reverse really threw me off.
    I tried to compare it to PCGS's photo grades but I was way off. Fun of the game. :)

  • JRoccoJRocco Posts: 14,066 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The money side is usually given the preference and this coin is lucky to have a better money side.
    I stick with my assessment above :)

  • BryceMBryceM Posts: 9,566 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I like it at 63. The reedmarks on the reverse and the abrasions on the cheek might be grade limiting. Luster might be a bit subdued for a 64, but this is devilishly hard to judge in a photo.

  • JimnightJimnight Posts: 7,984 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Missed out.
    Nice coin!

  • ashelandasheland Posts: 17,014 ✭✭✭✭✭

    MS63 was my gut, it looks graded well... Nice pick!
