Peace Dollars

I have a 1924 Peace Dollar graded MS-65 by NGC. It looks to be uncirculated but the letters st in trust are thin on the obverse and letters eri  in America are also thin on reverse. .Are these wear spots or from the dies? Could this have been overlooked in grading it a MS-65? No other flaws exist.

That could be caused by die erosion, or it could be the result of polishing the die to remove clash marks where the dies struck one another without a planchet between them. The latter explanation is the more likely, since the two areas in question are directly opposite one another on the coin.
