    I’ll grade it hazardous. Pinch down the staples or it will cause damage to other coins

    Isn't this the same one you posted yesterday? I still grade it as Fine.

    Yes sir. The moderator Of General evidently didn't like that I posted there and said that I would be better off in another forum for more replies.

    I agree with "average circulated".

    I'd probably call it EF+

    I think it's probably AU, but it looks kind of lackluster for some reason. The high points on the eagle's body wear pretty quickly, yet the feathers are still there.

    I'm at Fine. It's a common date and it has too much wear on LIBERTY's hair and on the Eagle. I could probably pick up one that looks close to this in my LCS's junk bin.

    C'mon guys. This is not what a F or even VF Peace looks like. Check Photograde. This coin absolutely has more detail than their XF40.:)

    From this photo it looks dull to me.
    I would call it XF

    Although I'm not saying this coin is that high, I have started another thread in US Coins Forum and would LOVE your all's opinions on this subject. Title below. Thanks for all your replies. Hope you're having a great weekend!

    Looks to me like an XF common date Peace dollar and not worth being certified, if you were interested in that.

    Plus 1. @physics-fan3.14 is one of the masters of grading, but I might downgrade this to F.

    Edit: The consensus appears to be higher than my assessment, so I defer to the judgment of others. I took a look at my three samples of this coin, all of which would probably grade at least AU/BU and maybe up to MS62.

    For everyone saying Fine.... take a look at Photograde: https://www.pcgs.com/photograde/#/Peace/Grades

    A coin in Fine has rims nearly worn down, and there is almost no detail left on the Eagle. Compare that to the OP's coin - most of the hair detail is still present (accounting for strike), and nearly all of the feathers are visible. Fine is just way too low.
