    Hi! Just bought a Morgan & a Peace dollar off eBay, both listed as errors by a reputable seller. The Morgan was listed as having a strike-through error on the nose of the obv, and the Peace was listed as having a delamination error on the obv, below the "In God We" (aka the thing that look like a deep scratch.) I don't specialize in Morgans or Peace dollars, so not sure if they are actually errors, or just post-mint damage. If the latter, I'll request a refund - paid $27 apiece for these. If they are the real deal, what exactly ARE they worth?

    On the Peace I don't think it's a lamination problem. It looks like a die drack to me and in a very common place. I don't see anything on the Morgan.

    That is a nice die crack on the Peace Dollar and may be a listed variety. I can't tell if that is a strike through or not on the Morgan. Judging by the line of the nose it would have to be very shallow.

    You were right on the Peace Dollar! Got a positive ID on it on my reddit post! This is it:

    Apparently it's listed as very rare, with moderate collector interest (I-3 R-7.) Any idea on its value? I looked on eBay once I got the variety name, and someone's listing it for like $90 in worse condition, but that could be inflated.

    I've gotten mixed opinions on the Morgan, one person said it's probably a strikethrough but with a softer foreign material since you can still see the design of the nose.

    You did it. Don't clean that Peace Dollar.
    Interesting find. Thanks for sharing.

    Great finds, and you didn't overpay for them for sure! BTW welcome to Coin Talk!

    While I have little experience in either errors, the Morgan looks like PMD. Something made contact and left a "stain" around it. The Peace dollar looks to me like a die break and a thread strike-through (back of neck and hair) the way it twists and changed directions. Is it incused or raised? Just my two cents and worth about that.

    The Morgan looks like a stain and at $27 you probably overpaid a little. The Peace Follar was a bargain. That is a great, well known die crack. Keepem both.

    I found a VAM 1E2 that sod on ebay, graded by ANACS as EF40 Details cleaned. it sold for $29.

    I think $90 is probably a bit high, $29 ok for "details", likely $40-$45 I'd think.

    I am not a fan of the color of either coin though, they look lifeless in these pics.

    can you post a front and back for the morgan dollar also? Maybe we can find a VAM for that...
