The edge, not the rim, please! The edge is the 3rd side of the coin.
I'm nervous about it too. Part of the hair seems to be sinking under the field, and that big raised spike across the rays under DOLLAR looks super sketchy.
That’s the way I am too. If I study a questionable coin too long I make the wrong decision every time….. Just like this Peace dollar. My first reaction was, “nope”…. More I look at it, I am trying to talk myself out of my initial judgment.
I agree. And the mouth and neck are both wrong. When has Lady Liberty ever had that big Adam's apple? Also, the eye is too far back in the head.
48 hours later and still no response. Don't ya just love it!
Yes, Yes....corny, but still, appropriate.
I mean you are quite literally showing up to a petstore, looking for a great white shark, and the aquarium doesn't have one of those either so why would the pet store?
None of us would have seen one before or really know the die markers and finishes, unless someone of us would have spent the time to extensively researched each and every one, or followed and read the research of someone that has. this is a very specialized niche of collector with BIG bucks.
So, in summation, I doubt anyone here could authenticate it as a 1922 regular relief proof peace dollar, even if your pictures were better and more thorough, BUT I'm 99.9% sure, the fact that you are here and not hitting the books on it and trying to contact the experts in this particular field suggests it's not one and wishful thinking at best.
if it's too good to be true, it probably is. it's a $100K + coin. there's maybe 10 in existence and that's only if they all were slabbed and accounted for at once (possibilities exist that the population numbers are high from resubmissions of the same coin for crossovers). even a details/genuine one goes for $30K minimum.
the chance that's one,,,, it's worse than you getting struck by lightening every day for the next year, which is more likely to happen.
I don't expect to ever see a real one and if I did I wouldn't begin to know how to authenticate it and verify it.
