Market Analysis: So near ‘gem’ grade, an MS-64+ 1928-S Peace dollar
- Published: Mar 26, 2021, 1 PM
Some of the San Francisco Mint issues in the Peace dollar series are rarities in top grades, so bidders place a premium on coins that are premium quality within the grade. A Professional Coin Grading Service Mint State 64+ 1928-S Peace dollar carrying a green Certified Acceptance Corp. sticker is as close as one can get to a “gem” grade without an MS-65 price tag.
GreatCollections offered one with some attractive golden and sea-green toning at the peripheries at its Feb. 14 sale that sold for $4,725.
Typical MS-64 examples can sell for as low as $600, while another nice MS-64+ coin certified by PCGS, also with a CAC sticker, brought $2,562 at Heritage’s January relocated Florida United Numismatists online auctions.
Although PCGS has recorded 2,058 submissions at the MS-64 level and 287 at the MS-64+ level, just 66 are graded MS-65, and these can sell for more than $10,000 at auction, placing pressure on unusually appealing MS-64+ examples like the offered one.
