    Okay, how much and where ? It looks funny to me. Very dull, no shine ? What's your thoughts ?

    Looks a little shady to me too.

    It's on Ebay. The Person has 600 positive and no negatives. However, with less than a day there are no bids on it at $199.00. That is why I am curious. He says it was probably cleaned.

    If it's "probably" cleaned then it's Damaged , no ? How much does he want ?

    Correct, but I don't necessarily pass on a cleaned coin if hits everything else. $199.00

    Yeah, I was expecting that kind of price but was curious why nobody was bidding. It's the last coin to finish out my Peace set.

    I'm not a specialist in either fakes or dollars, and something about it just seemed off. I'm going to go with everyone else's opinion, it's fake. There's just something off about it that I can't quite place.

    EXACTLY. And, let's be honest - how many late 1920'ish Peace $1's have you seen with a strike that clean? I dislike this series, as the reverses all (maybe the high relief is a tad better) look like they were struck through gravy. Yuck. LOL

    p.s. there is no question about "probably cleaned" - a coin with that much detail should be dripping in luster, IMHO.

    Pass on it. I love Peace Dollars. I have a high grade and 3 lower grade sets. I would pass on this coin.

    My first impression was “bad.” No luster, lots of detail but overall funky look. You have mess around a lot to make a higher grade, genuine coin look like this.

    Down to 8 hours and still no bids. Might be a bunch of suspicious people on eBay because usually, you get at least one person to jump on it regardless of the issues.

    Here is an AU NGC coin I was thinking of selling to OP for comparison. BC5CB5E5-E538-44FE-A423-304526ECEB69_4_5005_c.jpeg 2A6E811D-59E0-45B6-9237-48A27BAEA1BB_4_5005_c.jpeg 2A6E811D-59E0-45B6-9237-48A27BAEA1BB_4_5005_c.jpeg

    There's still some luster left...
