    You'd have to put me in handcuffs to stop me from revising that finish. Naw, I just meant conserving.
    Really. That's all I meant.

    Seriously, my initial impression is that someone's already messed with it.

    That spot on the eagle's wing appears to have depth. Is it a divot or just a flat spot?

    No depth. Just a dark spot.

    I have it at a 64. The hit in the hair on the forehead and the shatter by the word dollar on the reverse keep it back for me. Other than the the surfaces on the obverse are gem. I kinda dig the wood tone. I will as what is the green spot on the left field in from of lady liberty on the obverse?

    It's a toned spot. If I were any good at coin photography you would see a lot more subtle blues and greens throughout the obverse.

    That toning is crazy. My eyes can't not see it as raised ridges across the coin.

    I am going to guess they gave it a 65.

    Absolutely deserving of gem. Back in the day the TPG's seemed to hate streaky alloys.
    So I will say MS64.

    Quite a few got it right. I really like the no line fatty holders and I find this coin to be pretty attractive imo. Also a fairly low serial number which I liked. I paid $110.

    Uh, it has a gold holographic sticker that says Numismatic Guaranty Company of America.

    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    I know the 1925 Peace dollars tone ,I've have a few in my years collecting some 26's Ive seen with color,
    But for other dates I don't recall ever seeing any color. This specimen is appealing to me...as I like the woodie look.

    @Evan8 IMO that is a very nice coin in a collectible Slab with really very pleasing goldish toning. The few hits that are present are filled with toning and don't distract from the clean Cheek, which is the focal point. You paid the NGC Price Guide for the grade which IMO is a good deal for what you have.

    Nice coin. Fairly unique toning for a Peace Dollar. I just don’t see how people gave it a gem grade. There are plenty of contact marks under the toning.

    Too bad too. Probably why it has stayed in that slab this whole time.
