    Looks like has some nice luster... and a 'mirror' polished patch on obverse... I'd say AU.

    I would say the PVC patch on the obverse makes the coin worth only melt value...around $30.

    Is that corrosion, PVC, or green toning above TRVST ?

    Put it in some acetone!

    I don’t think PVC automatically makes a coin worth melt

    I enjoy your enthusiasm, yet when the coin is a common date in AU condition, sadly environment damage/ PVC does make it worth $30.

    Of course not. And since melt is $16.60? $30 for it sounds about right these days.

    Disregard comments saying it’s worth melt lol- wholesalers are paying $26+ for cull peace $1. It’s a nice slider AU/UNC coin. To take care of the obverse PVC get pure acetone, which you can buy as nail polish remover, soak a q tip and gently roll until removed. $30 is a solid buy.

    There are no bargains in US coins. The US coin market is very large and VERY mature. You need to be more selective in your purchases. That is a common date AU Peace Dollar with a problem.

    I'm thinking it's AU.

    Looks like an AU coin to me... The PVC may leave surface issues.... Show us again when it is cleaned up. Cheers, RickO

    Pure acetone IS NOT nail polish remover.

    Sometimes it is, but you have to check the bottle to be sure.

    Melt value is currently about 16.50, not $30, though the value of the coin is much closer to the latter.

    the good thing about your purchase is that there is not much downside

    you can soak that thing in acetone overnight and play with your dollar without hurting it too much valuewise
