A friend of mine inherited a coin collection about 8 years ago. At the time they decided they wanted to keep it for sentimental reasons. In summer of 2019 I was able to buy most of the "junk" silver. Today they handed me the rest of the collection & asked for an offer. There are 14 GSA CC Morgans, a complete Whitman album of Peace dollars, & 3 Whitman Morgan dollar albums that are nearly complete. I apologize in advance for the pictures. My old computer died, I haven't figured out how to use the new one, & I don't have a photo program to rotate the photos...not to mention these are just quick shots. Anyway, here are the pictures.

Reverse pic please. Pics are too dark to see surface details clearly.

The first thing that needs to be done is soak the coin in Acetone to remove what looks like green PCV on the obverse. If that does not work, get some Verdi Care to soak the coin.

Peace dollars are one of the most difficult coins to grade, JMHO. Even in mint state, they just look blah.

Need a reverse photos, agreed that some more light on the coin would help.

In mint state that is a key date, in average circulated state its a common coin - so accurate photos with this one make a difference.

Even though the pics are a little dark...I'm not seeing any major hits to the neck/cheek/nose. The rays look good...
The spot mentioned by the lower hair curl near the neck needs attention...over all a very nice looking key date. Without the reverse it's hard to through a grade on her, but if it's as nice as the obverse...mid-MS.

With all the coins mentioned for this collection...curious why you choose this ONE?
If they all look about the same comdition...that's quiet a nice little set!

Hope you follow up and let us know if you're able to make an offer and they accept it.

Peace dollars don't look blah to me...They're my favorites...jmho

Like I said the pictures are not the best. I've been waiting for my friend to make the decision to sell for 8 years & was excited they finally did. Guess I jumped the gun by posting with bad pics.

In hand the green spot was a dark colored dot. It showed up as green in the picture. Not sure why some people are able to see the obverse & not reverse....I posted both.

I only see two obverse images as well. Maybe both file names are the same?

I'm not an expert on VerdiCare but I thought it was only for copper?

This is the advertisement for Verdi Care on Wizard Coin Supply: VERDI-CARE™ is designed to work on all metal coin surfaces: gold, silver, copper, brass, etc. No more trial and error, no more guesswork, no more worries. VERDI-CARE™ is safe, gentle and effective as a surface debris remover. VERDI-CARE™ allows collectors to conserve their coins and not strip them clean of luster and original patina. There is a big difference between conservation and cleaning. With VERDI-CARE™ you can be sure not to cross that line due to its safe and gentle nature. Your coins will be conserved, not cleaned. Problems like light surface residue, verdigris and corrosion can now be addressed without resorting to expensive, third-party conservation services.

I used it on Buffs with the green crud and got excellent results. I have not used it on silver. If the coin had the green crud, I would have no problem using Verdi Care.

Well, only one side but the patina looks fantastic and doesn't look banged up. The spot is a small concern - be careful you don't disturb the stunning surfaces addressing it.

This one also went to ANACS. I paid extra for conservation on the lot because I had a few coins that needed it. They just posted order details on the website & it straight graded at MS63.
