Are peace dollars supposed to look like this on the edge? football shape with lines in between them.

Can anyone add some images of any edges on Peace dollars that resembles this one imaged?

    I think it looks fine from here. It also depends on year/mm since some have beveled rims, this is not one of them.

  • What is a beveled rim? I have a two with this on the edge.

  • I have a low relief 1922 peace dollar. It seems rounded between the edge and the rim. Will this considered a beveled rim?

    I believe several S mint issues, and 1927 and 1928 Philly coins have beveled rims. Just imagine the rim surface, but not it's angled to the edge, not square. Hopefully that description makes sense. It's just the way the die was shaped near the edge. I probably have one around here I can photo.

  • Thank you sir. Could overlapping be the VAM for this?

    1922-P(flat rim) on the left, 1927-P(beveled rim) on the right

    Oops, I've reversed them here...
    27 on left, 22 on right
