First I can not post any pictures seeing my scanner is down for the count, waiting to get it fixed.

Now the crux of the question, I have seen several answers to my question, and I am not sure which is the correct one. Last night I got a 1923 Peace Silver Dollar at the store where I work at, some dummy decided it was only worth just a dollar, lol.

The condition of the coin is very good, almost fine with some wear on the lettering. The luster is very good, with very little blemish. It was minted in SF ( I found the S mark but not where everyone keeps saying where it is, which is UNDER the word One and by the Tail Feathers). I would like to know the current value of this Peace dollar as well as what the stores will pay for it. I know the incintrict value will be far less seeing that it has been circulated versus uncirculated, I have collected coins when I was younger until someone decided to steal my collection. Some items I keep though, like my One Dollar Silver Certificates (I know they are only worth a buck 10 or a bit more, still waiting on that one elusive Red Letter One Dollar Silver Certificate, lol)

I just love working in a Convience Store sometimes, lol. You won't believe how many people actually give away valuable coins not knowing what they are actually worth. Had a standing liberty silver dollar once (only got the value of the silver for it though which at the time was $11.50 for the coin) but still more than a dollar, lol. Someone actually gave us an old $2.00 bill once (forgot the date but it was an old one) thinking maybe that it was one of the new ones, lol. I also have a 1958 Ben Franklin half dollar, luster is gone but still in fair condition, lettering is worn but not to bad, still has the etchings from the press which makes it really legible, it would look better if it was a bit more clean looking. But enough of all that, would really like to know the value of Peace dollar, I have been seeing $16.00 (for the value of the silver I guess), and on eBay $42.00 and up.

The value for your in a grade of fine is $33.00. This is from the Coin Values price book may 2011.
For the silver melt just Google silver melt price.

RGaston52. I checked your profile because my brother has a friend on the west coast named Rob Gaston who I think was born around '52! Not you though!

Anyways, the '23 Peace sounds like a melt value coin and with about 0.77 troy ounces of pure silver in, it is worth almost $35 at today's silver spot. Keep on looking for that silver. The silver dollars should be easy to see but watch all those coins!

If a mintmark is not on the reverse under ONE, then it is a Philadelphia coin. Under the truncation of the neck is the designer initials, AF for Anthony di Francisci. 1923P is the second most common Peace dollar and it is currently worth its silver value.

First and foremost

I use two different sites to check values and a host of books. A good rule of thumb site is numismedia and for bullion prices in circulated coins http://www.silverrecyclers.com/Calc...culator.aspx

I hope this silver calculator is an OK site for the forum.
