Do you think this monster toned peace dollar would slab?

Seller claims to have a backstory to it. My question is, do you think our host would find this Market Acceptable and would slab this one?

    Maybe, but might get a “details” due to environmental damage. I’m thinking it wouldn’t get a “questionable color” though

    Backstory irrelevant. I don't see it grading.

    My money would be on “Details- Environmental Damage”

    Also, the eagles leg has a deep gouge on the reverse, and I find the toning to be way too dark for my liking. It seems like the sellers “backstory” is the reason he priced it the way he did, but I have a feeling that if you went to sell that coin to another dealer they might offer you 10% of that price if you were lucky.

    $30 for the coin, $270 for the backstory. Hard pass.

    That Peace dollar reminds me of this Jan 2, 2023 Coin World article.

    Slab? Yes.

    Slab in a straight-grade holder. No. Goodness no. Even if it did, I wouldn't pay anywhere near that much for it.

    Terrible seller’s images and probably questionable color designation from our host.

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

    That's some pretty ugly toning. How much oil did they rub into that leather pouch before putting the coin in?

    It looks like one picked up from walkup seller at show - VF but much darker. Dipping it helped. This one more border line. Maybe it tarnished in that leather pouch. Seller said he kept a bunch of them in his garage ( Lake Jackson, TX). Garage prob got 100 plus In summer. Just depends on one’s taste….whether keep as is. would not spend money sending in. That would buy nice Pcgs slabbed MS69 ASE.

    I don't think it will straight grade, I don't think it's attractive, and I don't know how anyone could classify this as monster toning.

    True, but when that occurs, it’s usually the seller who’s doing it.

    Several years ago I bought a collection with a Morgan dollar in a leather wallet like this one. It had similar toning and it would not straight grade. I cannot remember what the details said.

    For the record, while the exceptions are probably few, he hasn’t used the word “monster” in every thread he’s started and he has posted again to threads he’s created.

    "Monster toned" suggests beautifully toned. From the images I would not categorize this as beautifully toned.

    I would not call the toning monster. Most Peace Dollars tone ugly, and the example is better than most Peace Dollars with splotchy toning. The Peace Dollar may have naturally toned in the wallet, but that does not mean PCGS is going to straight grade the coin. The seller's asking price is already in the range of a nice toned Peace Dollar in a PCGS holder with a straight grade.

    I don't believe that sellers who hype coins, necessarily "see it" (them) the way they describe it (them).
