Peace dollars

YorkshiremanYorkshireman Posts: 4,494 ✭✭✭✭✭

Thinking about sticking my toe into the Peace dollar market to give me a distraction as I work on a dark side project of 8 Reales.

If you have some, please show me your favorite.

    Hey Lance. Nice one!

    Well, I didn't exactly move on but I did sell my set several months ago. I hope the new owner is enjoying it. I cheated a little bit and kept a couple of my favorites.

    I've only purchased one Peace dollar in the last month. :)

    I'll post a few photos when I get home later tonight. For now, just a teaser (one of the coins I sold):

    And my screen saver which was made from a beautiful coin Lance sold me:

    @BryceM, that '24 was phenomenal. 67? 67+?

    I have done a few sets of peace since coming back to coins. There are a couple cool varieties and ways to mix it up but they are just too easy. Here was a fun set I did for not a lot of money

    And here are my fav varieties of large DDO with two different Rev dies/MMs

    I am partial to this one. Currently in a small anacs 64 holder that failed to cross to PCGS. Also my avatar coin. It isn't the greatest or most expensive but I really like it.

    My distraction is Peace dollars that I have "made" from pawn shops or similar locations. Most common dates are in ms 64 now, but I also made a killer 1925 in 65. For $14, can't go wrong! It's a slowly growing work.

    What a neat idea!

    This one is sold now but I think you can all see why it was one of my all-time favorites. I think I bought it originally from John Agre/CRO, seller's pics. I nearly broke my arm reaching for the phone when I got one of his early-warning emails.

    Kind regards,

    George

    George,
    Staggering coin!!

    @Yorkshireman me too, as I traded it to another dealer for his customer's want list, I would much rather have placed it with one of my customers! Be well.

    Kind regards,

    I would have purchased that 1921 too. What a nice coin. Positive eye-appeal toning and a phenomenal strike. Cool.

    @BryceM exactly what I thought! Don't see many that well-struck.

    And who would know better? Everyone should own a copy of A Guide Book of Peace Dollars. Wonderful resource!

    I was very patient finding the right one for my type set, this one finally jumped out at me. Before buying this coin I wasn't a huge fan of the series but after getting it in hand and seeing the amazing luster and what these coins could be I became a huge fan and will eventually start a set. Seeing the coins in the thread here confirm that, some beautiful stuff everyone.

    Beautiful coin for a type set! As you've discovered, typical Peace dollars are pretty nasty. Really nice ones are impressive!
