Please let me know your idea of grade. Thanks!
It has lots of luster, but some toning, I used a light almost parallel to the coin to take these pics with my phone.

The reverse in particular shows a wonderful glow and just has the "look" - put away and untouched for many years.

I agree with the Frog's grade of 64.

But really - that's a beautiful, well struck Peace dollar. I also agree - 64

Who knows - this could grade even higher if the obverse is clean under that toning.

I'm going to go against the grain here. My initial reaction to seeing this coin is that it was a "liner" AU/BU. But, after seeing the other comments and the OP's description, possibly the pictures are not that flattering and I'm being too harsh. If it's MS, then 64 seems reasonable.

However, I think (and I can see some of you screaming Nooooo) that this coin can benefit from a light dip. I don't care much for this toning on this very common Peace dollar and it would probably benefit from a dip to give it real flash and blast it is truly lustrous under that toning.
