    1935 Peace Dollar, MS67
    A Condition Rarity at This Grade Level

    1935 $1 MS67 PCGS. Anthony de Francisci's Peace dollar was first struck in 1921 to commemorate and celebrate the end of the Great War. Distribution began in early 1922 and continued through 1935, though none were issued during the height of the Great Depression from 1929 to 1933.

    The Philadelphia Mint was responsible for quarterbacking Peace dollar production most years. From 1922 to 1925 inclusive, more than 104.5 million coins were struck at the facility. Output tapered off thereafter, reaching a low of 360,649 coins in 1928. Peace dollar production picked up again in 1934, and coins were struck for the final time in 1935. Output that year fell shy of 1.6 million coins, representing one of the lower totals in the series, especially compared to productions early on.

    The 1935 Peace dollar claims an average certified grade that falls between MS62 and MS63. Examples are plentiful through MS64, still readily accessible in MS65, and only become truly scarce in MS66. We would not hesitate to call the 1935 a major condition rarity in MS67. This is one of only eight submissions at that level at PCGS. Seven coins have made the MS67 grade at NGC, including one MS67+. None are finer at either of the two leading certification services (8/21).

    This top-graded Registry coin is almost wholly untoned, save for a few faint suggestions of gold and a single splash of dusky powder-blue patina above the eagle's head. Softly frosted, almost satiny mint luster glistens across what are nearly contact-free surfaces.
