    MS66 NGC 1927-D Peace Dollar, A Condition Census Example of this Key D-mint Issue

    1927-D $1 MS66 NGC. The 1927-D boasts the highest mintage of all 1927-dated Peace Dollars, but the total delivery of 1.2 million pieces is still on the low side for the series. The fate of many of the coins remains a mystery to this day, as the '27-D is scarce in circulated grades and rare (by Peace Dollar standards) in Mint State. Actually, this issue is the rarest D-mint Peace Dollar, and most of the coins that did not enter circulation at the time of issue were most likely melted. With the exception of a two-and-a-half bag hoard that Sotheby's auctioned on June 23, 1992, no quantities of 1927-D Dollars have ever entered the numismatic market. Most of the 2,500 coins in the Sotheby's dispersal were noticeably abraded, since Dwight Manley estimated that only 50 of the coins would grade MS65, and none finer.
    This is only the fourth MS66 1927-D Peace Dollar that we have offered over the past 10 years, and, out of just eight coins known to the two major grading services, it is the only one at NGC. There are none finer (5/02). Bright and satiny, the surfaces are uncommonly well detailed for the type. There are a few light stress cracks (as produced) on the obverse around the E in LIBERTY, but the surfaces are devoid of bothersome bagmarks. A few sprays of pale golden-tan color decorate the otherwise brilliant-white features of this significant 20th century condition rarity. (NGC ID# 257T, PCGS# 7371)
