This peace dollar holds a nice premium due to its DDO error(VAM-3), low mintage, and condition. Yet we have not provided good pics for the obverse doubling of the motto, designers initials, or the date. Why is this?
The reason is because this 1928, from the San Francisco mint, has what we believe to be a lamination crack (planchet error) on the reverse side. Though we are not certain. The crack stretches from rim to rim, entering the field, and over the end of the eagle's tail. Months of searching, and we have yet to find another one on a "28-S anywhere! Look closely at the top end of the crack.(first pic on the bottom left) Notice the rise in the metal on the rim side of the crack. We believe this is further evidence of a lamination crack. We are taking the steps to get it attributed, graded and registered. We would love to get some more feedback on this one. We have received some really helpful information as of late. We thank everyone who has offered there advise. If you can offer any further information (positive or negative) we would love to hear from you!
Just zoom in on the images below, and see for yourself!!
Below are the specs. and some additional information on this coin with no errors.
Type: Peace Dollar
Mint Mark: S
Face Value: $1 USD
Total Produced: 1,632,000
Metal Composition: 90% Silver
Numismatic Value: As a rough estimate of this coins value you can assume one in poor condition will be valued at somewhere around $35, while one in "perfect" condition can bring $25,000. This price does not reference any standard grading scale. So when we say poor, we mean worn more than would be expected from a coin in this age, and perfect meaning it looks "perfect" without flaw or possibly even certified.
