1926-D Peace Dollar

1926-D Peace Dollar

The 1926-D Peace Dollar struck at the Denver Mint is known for being one of the better produced issues of the series. The coins are typically found with sharp strikings and excellent luster. The major grading services have graded nearly 300 examples in MS66 and more than a dozen examples graded MS67.

This issue came after a gap in production at the Denver facility and was followed by another gap. The previous Denver minted silver dollar was the 1923-D and the next would be the 1934-D.

The coin shown above is graded PCGS MS65 with a CAC sticker. It displays the characteristically sharp strike and great luster associated with the issue. A few prominent bag marks preclude a higher grade despite the overall excellent appeal.
