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

    1922-S $1 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: JDC. Throughout the Peace dollar series, San Francisco coins are scarcer in Gem and better grades than their Denver and Philadelphia counterparts, regardless of mintages. This is especially notable for the 1922 issues, of which the San Francisco coin is by far the rarest of the three in high grade. Like most S-mint issues of the 1920s, the 1922-S Peace dollar circulated to a greater extent than the Denver and Philadelphia coins. In his silver dollar Encyclopedia, Q. David Bowers noted numerous bags of the date that were paid out of the Mint beginning in the 1940s, but most of these were heavily bagmarked from rough storage and handling in government vaults, and many of the coins went into casino channels instead of numismatic hands. These factors contribute to the rarity of the 1922-S in MS66, where only a few dozen pieces are known, with none finer (7/21).

    Despite similar certified populations, Premium Gems in PCGS holders are about twice as rare as those in NGC slabs when appearing at auction. Moreover, only four pieces in this grade overall carry CAC endorsement, the present coin among them. Frosty luster abounds across brilliant, unabraded surfaces. The vibrant cartwheel effect captivates the viewer's eye, while the strike is above average for the issue. Population: 24 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer. CAC: 4 in 66, 0 finer (7/21).
