    4E77B80A-A510-4552-B6EB-DAC989C22C95.jpeg Low relief proof. Yes I know the difference. The ray doesn’t go past the N on the reverse. Notice the contrast, square rims, satin finish, blocky letters, and string inner coronet. I know the wing looks weak but I noticed die polishing marks where feathers should be. 0E5E2DD5-206D-4308-95F5-AF3A54659D86.jpeg

    I know the holder means nothing. 828C2CB0-177D-435C-8060-BFC8FA6F6D64.jpeg 27754B04-21DF-4FDD-AC7F-98C91BD65EB8.jpeg

    There is evidence to suggest the high amount of attempted detail on the eagle’s upper wing led to a die break. 538092D2-D557-412A-AD4B-4E44C9AECC11.jpeg

    Would a reverse die rotational error lead to a lack of detail on the eagle? The die is rotated 20 degrees on the reverse counter clockwise.

    Also an insane amount of die polishing marks

    notice when it is in low light the contrast is noticeable but not deeply noticeable between the high points of the coin and the satin finish

    The letters, rays, eagle’s wing, as well as liberties’ cheek have been die polished like I’ve never seen in any other coin.

    Nice coin for sure, but when the man who wrote the guide book on Peace Dollars states it is not a proof I would tend to believe him. If you are that sure, you should probably just submit it for verification.

    I do not believe the coin to be genuine.

    Very poor rendering of the details of the design in all areas, letters executed in the wrong proportions and of the wrong character, the rim looks wrong, etc.

    TC's observations got my suspicions up. The filled upper loop of the B in LIBERTY could be from a hit. But the tapered look of UNITED prompted me to compare with a few Peace Dollars I had on the table. Holding my coins to the window and with out a glass I'm not so sure about the OP's coin either...
     
  20. It is an excellent copy, indeed.

    Congratulations @James R, I've never seen someone post a question and then pretty much answer the question, or disprove it, before they received any feed back. Nice photos BTW.
