    Nice XF- low AU? (I see some luster there) album coin.
    Wise not to consider a slab.

    Those horizontal scratches across Libertys face lower the grade/value a lot.

    Yikes, a lot of hairlines. Unfortunately, I think a LOT of BU Peace Dollars got scrubbed in the 60s and 70s, however, nice MS-64s can be had for reasonable prices, including this date.

    Looks as if it has hairlines, that will bring the grade down a bit....Looks like AU50... Cheers, RickO

    She's a little scruffy, but has a nice strike and some good remaining luster. From the picture I would say she's an AU53 candidate if you would have her graded, but I think it's better to keep her raw and enjoy her in an album or with the others.

    I love the design of the peace dollar. Your 34 is a nice album coin.

    Basic scruffy AU. I think the huge photo likely makes those scratches look worse than they do in hand, just a guess. It's just honest pocket wear by the looks of it -- what happens when you carry a silver dollar in your pocket with your keys. Nothing wrong with it.

    AU50 but probably wouldn't command much over XF40 with the pronounced hairlines.

    Need a Barber Half with ANACS photo certificate. If you have one for sale please PM me. Current Ebay auctions
