Got this yesterday from a local Jewlery store owner. Short version he has over 40 , 1922 that he just got in from someone hard up for cash. He offered them all to me for $10 each for the lot. I know nothing about them or the VAM listings.Bought this one because I liked the tone on it . Can anyone with some knowledge of the series point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

$10 each?!?! Forget worrying about varieties...

If they are real, they each contain ~$20 in silver at current spot prices, which are close $26/ozt. And even cull silver dollars seem to sell for $5 or more over the spot price these days.

That's$20 of silver for $10. Not sure why he is offering it cheap. Check weight and size. Pics look good.

Edit .... He is not trying a scam (I dont believe )he told me he got them for "around 5 each" ... I'm guessing "or less". Hes working a deal to buy a bulk lot of gold so think he may be just trying to raise some quick cash . ? Weight on one I got is 26.73 G. So seems legit ?

If someone in a bind offered them to me for five each, I would not sleep well taking advantage of someone like that. Or, I might think they were stolen...

On the other hand that is a ridiculously low price he is offering you. Maybe he hasn't recalibrated his pricing expectations for several years?

If he finds out gold costs more than $400/ozt anymore, the price on his silver might be going way up!

A question to anyone looking in....

Would the tissue test work on a toned coin such as this one?

Edited: maybe that and a scale would be quickest for this poster

I edited my above post/question because without the added edit it seemed (to me) like I was hi-jacking the topic and didn't want that...

@ Rothery...sorry I don't understand your response...please enlighten me....

Well I'm not religious so I can't "enlighten" you but if you put things together then yo can tell "I was offered them for 10$ apiece" and then "Coin Type: 1921-1935 Peace dollar
Silver Price: $19.97 / troy ounce"
- just doesn't make sense - EH?

Buy them all. Take your scale and a magnate with you. Stay in the loupe on the gold one also.

If you have the right app on your phone, compare the "ping' with a known real one.

The obverse on that piece is amazingly well struck up, particularly for a lightly circulated coin. While the price is right out of the 1980's, I'd investigate further. What is the thickness? Can you get a pic of the rim?

Just day dreaming.... if I tell him he is only asking half the price of silver in each coin, he may realize he has made a big mistake on the pricing. Jewelers aren't usually shy about charging big markups, so why would he offer genuinely huge discount? Hmmm, wouldn't a jewelry store have some sort of precious metal detection equipment? Is greed clouding my judgement? *wakes up*
