I saw this 1921 Peace Dollar on ebay. I was wondering what grade you guys think it is.

...as for whether it ruins the coin or not... it depends. Most will consider polishing/cleaning of any kind to be 'damage' to the coin.
Either way it looks polished, and that is not good. I would stay away and find another one. The 1921 peace is not difficult to find, just be patient.
Depends on your definition of "ruin". If that coin is AU (I cannot tell for the glare), it should sell for no more than an XF price when cleaned and probably VF as much as that has been cleaned.
It ruins the value of the coin. This one is obviously polished.
Melt value = $10
I'd give 8 to 10
The earlier comment of $10 melt is way off. It's still a 1921 Peace, no matter the treatment. If I watched the guy polish it, I'd still pay $50-60, and sell it for $70-80.
