  1. Why do you think it is counterfeit? Your coin is die struck. Some known counterfeits have extra die polishing seen on the neck, can not tell from your pics as if counterfeit, is a better one.
  2. The upper left and then left coin got punched so it has a black eye. Must have been in a fight with someone.
  3. It is not a real US coin. I am not sure metal content, if silver cold be a couple bucks. Before you buy things like this, you should be able to find what real ones look like and compare.
  4. It looks like die 2 according to varietyvista, including die crack on eagles head. So is James Wiles wrong and where does PCGS get its info? http://varietyvista.com/09b WQ Vol 2/RPM Detail Pages/1952DMMS0042.htm
  5. From the picture, I can not tell if it grades higher than XF. Is it in a cointain?
  6. Peace Dollar Fanatic, have you checked with VAM World to see if your coin has the diagnostics of any of the recognized VAMs ? http://www.vamworld.com/1921-P+Peace+VAMs
  7. You have the common Type A reverse. The link below is the best reference material I have seen on Washington reverse varieties. http://www.heartlandcoinclub.com/Documents/Washington Quarters Reverse Design Varieties (RDV) From A to H, and Beyond.pdf
  8. I have sometimes wanted to see what else was in the submission and checked the coins before and after, going to be harder now.
  9. An interesting thread from ATS https://forums.collectors.com/discussion/655431/1921-and-22-matte-proof-peace-dollars in it is a link about PCGS grading some of Mint director Bakers' estate http://numismatica.com/tag/peace-dollars/ and then USpatterns link to early peace dollar patterns http://uspatterns.stores.yahoo.net/j2019.html
  10. There are not many CAMs in the early 36-42 proof sets. I also do not think there are that many (? <10%) sitting in a closet with an old collection, since they are now at least 75 years old. https://legendauctions.hibid.com/lot/23363366/50c-1942-pcgs-pr66-cameo-cac/ https://coins.ha.com/itm/proof-walking-liberty-half-dollars/1938-50c-pr66-cameo-pcgs/a/1151-5812.s?hdnJumpToLot=1x=0&y=0
  11. Peace Dollar Fanatic, are you suggesting a collector altered the surface of this coin somehow (acid, sandblast, pickled?) similar to how collectors lacquered their old copper?
  12. why would they want it? to put on their fake slabs?
  13. very nice - maybe one of those satin finished this link is to a Heritage auction with die characteristics and an interesting video https://coins.ha.com/itm/proof-peace-dollars/1921-1-satin-pr66-ngc/a/1201-5344.s?hdnJumpToLot=1x=0&y=0
  14. I was watching Heritage Live this afternoon because there were some very nice Washington quarters I was interested in. All of a sudden the auction started skipping all even number lots (the ones I was interested in). Does anyone know what happens to the lots skipped? they were mostly listed as No Reserve and come from a very good registry set that is/was being sold...
  15. Breen says the 1933-S is strongest strike since 1917 for halves...
  16. did you buy and sell these? I am curious if you cherry-picked some of the end-roll toners or gems and if they are getting grade? if so, those would be some nice pics when you get them back.
