    1923 Peace Dollar, CAC'd MS67+
    VAM-1V, 'Extra Hair' Elite 30 Variety
    Sole Finest to Ever Appear at Auction

    1923 $1 Extra Hair, VAM-1V, Elite 30, MS67+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: JDC. An Elite 30 Variety. Peace dollars in general are elusive in Superb Gem condition, and this is well demonstrated by the 1923 issue -- it is plentiful in all grades through MS66, but in MS67 it becomes scarce. Registry collectors and other advanced specialists, however, will recognize that with a Plus designation Superb Gem 1923 Peace dollars enter into a new realm of rarity. PCGS has awarded only four MS67 coins the coveted Plus label, and NGC lists only eight pieces with the same classification; none are finer at either service (7/21).

    Moreover, MS67+ coins are almost untouchable for most collectors. We are aware of only one NGC coin in this classification that has appeared at auction, and to our knowledge, the JDC piece offered here is the first PCGS MS67+ specimen to appear in any public numismatic auction. This example also boasts CAC endorsement, which ranks it as the arguably sole finest 1923 Peace dollar that has ever been offered at auction. That distinction carries even more weight with this piece when one considers that it is also the sole finest VAM-1V coin attributed at PCGS, an Elite 30 VAM variety distinguished by a pair of irregular die breaks in the back of Liberty's hair. Luster beams radiantly from untouched surfaces. Fabulous cartwheel bands that encompass each side. Detail is razor-sharp, and both sides are beautifully brilliant. A stunning type coin, Registry contender, and VAM-1V example. This is a coin that will captivate every facet of Peace dollar collectors.
