1923 PEACE DOLLAR VAM ????

Post by Longstrider » Wed Mar 01, 2023 6:25 pm

So I am having trouble attributing this Peace Dollar. I bought it online at a junk silver price. There is an apparent spike coming off the eagles shoulder. It is easy to see in hand but I am not getting it in photos. Any ideas? I could sure use some help here. I'm happy to take any additional photos as needed. Thanks.🐍
It doesn't feel raised.???

All 3 rev photos seem to show the spike at different angles kin relation to the normal rays.

Not as bad as one would think a junk dollar would be- pretty good details remain
Rev- One pic shows so called spike more like wear as the pic shows No raised metal that
would be spike, but other pics seem to show some raised metal ? Dwn by feet show extreme

Looks like a normal spike from a clashed die. If it extends up to letters it's probably listed, or if it's dbl'd it is probably listed as well. The spiked shoulder is very common with clashed dies. Hope that's helpful. :D
