    If you could tell the mint mark it would be.

    Seems strange that a lot of the detail is missing from around near the rim yet Ike and the eagle show most of their original detail. Could this be a very weak set-up strike or perhaps grease filled dies?

    That doesn't appear to be naturally worn down to that level. Regardless, with how infrequently I saw, received or spent Ike dollars when they were issued, it might be considered that anything below MS60 is a lowball Ike!

    it may be a collectable error or pmd. for my part, i can't be 100% from those images at that angle but they are pretty good though.

    Odd. Looks like wear in the fields on the obv. Rim doesn't look touched though.
    It looks like wear but not normal for sure.

    I thought I'd post my grease filled Kennedy die for comparison.

    Grease filled die does seem like a possible culprit.

    I vote grease-filled die followed by many years at a casino.

    Way too much detail left for me. Peace Roy

    I'm in the greaser column.

    I have something similar. I'll start another thread for opinions.

    Even the reeded edge looks intact on the OP's Ike. I like the grease filled die answer more than common wear.

    Always looking for attractive rim toned Morgan and Peace dollars in PCGS or (older) ANA/ANACS holders!

    I think that coin has been messed with. The rims appear to remain, yet the fields and indicia are worn - yet the central designs are more prominent. I choose 'messed with' rather than the grease filled die explanation. JMO... Cheers, RickO
