1928 S Peace Dollar - You Vs PCGS

I'm definitely on the 64/65 fence but willing to defer to PCGS's assessment at 65. Definitely better than the PCGS 65 I purchased earlier this year (and subsequently sent back for a refund). It oozes originality in hand which probably swings it in the 65 camp.

@smat Feel free to send me an email and I can share my source who is extremely well connected and knowledgeable.

I guess I should have said this is not the MM/Year to show off the peace dollar's beauty! 24/25/28 S are brutally produced. Here is the trueview for an extra peek into the surfaces (I know the forum's hatred of them). Feel free to cheat, I'm lazy!

As always, thank you in advance. I know there is a lot of disdain towards peace dollars so I try to share the beauty of the series!

Also, the breast almost looks "built up" on the OP's coin. I can't imagine any reason to do that though so I'll try to put that out of my mind.

This is my 58 which was sitting in my grandma's closet for the better part of 40 years before I rescued it for AU 58 reference. It did NOT CAC for reference also. I always error on AU on 84-S...

First of all, real or fake. Only reason I ask is the 9's look strange to me. Otherwise luster is there. Thanks as always!

I took pictures at a steep angle to really show it in the worst light! Booming luster, bright white coin. I think it as least a 64 and honestly looks like a lot of my 65+'s.

63/65 split grade would be perfect, I'd lean towards 63

The neck is not as pristine as the trueview shows, but that is all I could see in the sellers pics.

Would you believe me if I told you this was in a 63 holder!?! I had to pay between 63-64 money for it but I have a feeling this is getting cracked and resubmitted. I was with all of you in my grading assessment, hopefully we are right!

I did cheat in hopes that it was graded AU and cheap (as I do believe it is MS) and I will actually agree with the technical grade but not the plus!

This is why peace dollars get a bad rap! But yes, grading for this one is best left in had, and it is only technical grading as this toning will kill any value.

Seller pics were interesting and over exposed (and I know you all hate grading off trueview) but what are your thoughts?

Not my area of expertise and honestly have no idea but willing to learn! Genuine or Chinese crap? I was only able to take a quick picture so the color is a little off, much more silvery in real life.

Well then.I can get on board with all comments above. I'd love to get into it at $250 but at $400 it is a bit of a gamble! My thoughts, it is offered as BU, when I deep dive on the pics, I can get there but upon a quick glance it looks like a slider 58.
