    1922-S Peace Dollar, MS66
    Remarkable Top-Grade Example
    Few Pieces Known This Fine With CAC

    1922-S $1 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Illinois Set. The San Francisco issue is the scarcest of the three 1922 Peace dollars, especially in Mint State. The fact that its mintage of nearly 17.5 million pieces exceeds that of the 1922-D by more than 1.5 million pieces is a non-factor. Throughout the Peace dollar series there is an unbroken rule that for each year this denomination was coined, the San Francisco issue is rarer in Gem or better grades than either the Philadelphia or Denver counterparts. Mintage totals play no part in this. Many researchers suggest the lower survival rate of S-mint dollars in high grade is due to more active circulation on the West Coast, and in some cases bags of Uncirculated coins still in government vaults were just moved more frequently, reducing the grades of the coins contained.

    The 1922-S Peace dollar is collectible in MS65, but it is rare at the Premium Gem level and unknown finer. Premium Gems in PCGS holders are rarer than those graded by NGC, and a grand total of only four coins between both PCGS and NGC carry CAC endorsement. The present coin is one of those. Frosty luster abounds across brilliant, unabraded surfaces. The vibrant cartwheel effect draws the viewer's eye away from trivial strike softness at the centers. Population: 17 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer. CAC: 4 in 66, 0 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N2998)
