Welcome to CT BTW.
Not any relation to Gary from Sacramento, are you? Old High School friend of mine.
I posted the full pictures.
First, welcome to the neighborhood, Vickie!
PMD is "post-mint damage".
Those marks are not merely scratches. They are severe gouges with coin metal pushed out along the edge.
FYI, die cracks are not usually attributed as errors on Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars. More often, they are used to determine die state. You can learn more about this on VAMWorld where all Morgan and Peace Dollar varieties are identified.
How much did you pay?just curious and the one above is just damage.
I posted them.
Thank you! And thanks for the information! I appreciate it!
I bought 58 coins at $24 each.
Are they gouges if the lines are raised?
It's similar to the "crater effect" when a meteorite strikes the earth. The recessed area is the gouge, and the raised area is the coin metal pushed up and out of it.
Gotcha! Good example! Thank you.
