1924 PEACE DOLLAR IGC 1924 PEACE DOLLAR NGC 1924 PEACE DOLLAR NGC 1922-D PEACE DOLLAR NGC 1925 PEACE DOLLAR NGC If strike is really an element of grade then how can all five of these coins be within 2 points of each other. In terms of luster and eye appeal, I think that all five coins are undeniably strong. There are subtle differences in the surface preservation which accounts for the difference in grades of the five coins, but it seems that the strike of the coins has been eliminated from the process. Have the TPG's adopted a process whereby they will ignore strike as an element of grade for coins that routinely are weakly struck? Are they saying that because Peace Dollars are routinely found weakly struck that we will not penalize the grade for being weakly struck? Peace Dollars are not the only coins that are afforded this kind of strike leniency. The TPG's also do this with regards to "O" mint Morgan Dollars. However, I contend that the strike range for "O" mint Morgan Dollars is much smaller than the range for Peace Dollars. What I mean is that I have never seen a fully struck "O" mint Morgan. They are all weakly struck and some are just worse than others. But the Peace Dollars as we can see from the photos above come both poorly struck and fully struck. Therefore, I contend that they should not ignore or downplay the role of strike with regards to grade The coins are shown in order from weakest strike to strongest strike. I contend that they are also show in order from lowest grade to highest. IMO, the first coin is an MS63, coins 2-4 are MS65, and the last coin is an MS66. Can you guess the assigned grades by the TPG's? For accuracy's sake, the marks on the cheek of coin #2 are on the holder. Additionally, some of the photos are taken by me and others by Heritage. Can you guess which photos are mine? I will send an uncirculated Peace Dollar to the first person who can do both.
