Are Mid-Level MS Peace Dollars Normally Baggy?

    I have a full date/mm set of Peace dollars.
    It's a secondary set for me so I wasn't originally after high grade coins.

    I just looked at my inventory and saw that 9 of the 24 coins are graded below MS-63.
    (Not surprisingly most of the 9 are are the keys/semi-keys.)
    I am considering upgrading those 9 to MS-63 or -64.
    But when I looked at NGC/PCGS coins in those grades on eBay they were baggy.
    Is that to be expected?

    They'll have some bag marks, but shouldn't be excessively "baggy." When you upgrade, it's important to make sure that you like the coin you're considering buying more than the one you have. It's not just the number on the holder you should be looking at, but you already knew that.

    I "upgraded" a 79-S Rev. of 78 Morgan from a 64 I had to a 63 I liked better plus a small pile of cash.

    63s usually have quite a few marks. 64 usually not so.

    Silver dollars were big soft heavy silver coins, and the Peace dollar has big flat open areas. Perfect combination for lots of bag marks.
