Peace Dollar VAM ?

I don’t believe that is a die crack. Thiss lines are caused by mechanical coin rollers when they crimp the end of the roll. Likely not Mint damage but PmD.

on the other hand the irregularity of the line and the raised nature of it does seem to be a crack fill. I would have looked at closely by a numismatist.

Die cracks are not normally used to distinguish Peace dollar varieties. If a crack becomes enlarged into a break (missing a little piece of the die face) then it would be listed among the thousands of "VAM" [Van Allen-Mallis] Morgan and Peace varieties.

Looks like a die crack to me, but then again I don’t care about die cracks, so there you have it. The location is about where I’d expect a die crack to be.

Agree on die crack. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a peace/Morgan dollar or any of others from this time and earlier with rolling machine marks.  Out of curiosity and learning does anyone know when mechanical rolling machines came into use? Has anyone seen a rolling machine mark on something earlier than say 1950 that was uncirculated?

There are way too many for this date for me to want to figure it out, here is a link to the VAMWorld page for the 1923-S so you can figure it out. Link
