I bought this coin a few years ago with a lot of other Peace dollars and I just assumed it was a damaged coin that somehow got damaged by the way someone else had stored it because the condition on the obverse is dramatically different than the reverse.

The obverse isn't as slick as it may appear in the pic because I can still see and feel the relief of the coin with my fingers so the weak condition doesn't appear to be just from excessive circulation wear.

And although the reverse does have some kind of dark environmental surface damage, it appears to have VF/XF details.

After looking at the coin again recently I'm wondering if the obverse might have been struck through a lot of grease or maybe struck through a die cap.

Can anyone tell from these pics if it might be a struck through type error coin?

I think it is damage. The rim is worn. Grease strikes, as far as I know, has no affect on the rim. Maybe a coin somebody threw on the sander for a few seconds.

you may be correct, Ive always thought the obv of this coin had sort of a melted appearence to it, but there are a lot of light surface scratches on the obv so I suppose it was just heavily scratched/sanded on one side some time ago.

I suppose the contrast in appearence on each side had me confused with this coin.

I agree with jacrispies, looks like someone took a sander to it.

Whatever caused it, it is a damaged coin. PMD
Nothing there that could have happened during the striking of the coin.

ok thanks for helping me confirm.

I still have a lot of other coins in my collection that I have never examined very closely for errors or varieties so maybe I can still find something good if I keep looking.
