    1922-S Peace Dollar, MS66
    Among the Finest Known

    1922-S $1 MS66 PCGS. Although readily available in grades through MS65, the 1922-S Peace dollar suddenly becomes very rare in MS66, and none are known numerically finer. Although more than 17 million pieces were struck, percentage-wise, few were spared distribution into circulation, thus reducing the modern-day population of Mint State survivors to negligible levels in high grade. In A Guide Book of Peace Dollars (2008), Roger Burdette writes: "The finest known examples of the 1922-S are graded MS-66, and at this writing fewer than two dozen have been certified in this condition by the major grading companies." Today, PCGS lists 12 Premium Gems and NGC 17, including possibly a few resubmissions. The present coin displays vibrant, brilliant mint luster and largely unabraded surfaces. Slight strike softness on the central high points is typical of the issue although almost unnoticed on this coin. Population: 12 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (11/16).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 257E, PCGS# 7359)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
