Q. David Bowers

The following narrative, with minor editing, is from my "Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia" (Wolfeboro, NH: Bowers and Merena Galleries, Inc., 1993).

Numismatic Information

Hoard coins: Many bags of 1928-S dollars came on the market in the late 1930s and early 1940s. More bags were released in 1949 and 1950 when the San Francisco Mint distributed them through banks in its area and by direct shipment to Nevada casinos. There was little numismatic interest in them, however, as Peace dollars were not a popular series and, in any event, the market was in a slump. John Highfill writes that possibly four to six bags were in the Redfield Hoard (auctioned in 1976), and that most had deep scratches from a mechanical counting machine employed while they were being inventoried.

Circulated grades: Circulated coins in VF-20 to AU-58 grades are somewhat scarce and are about in the middle of the 24 varieties from an availability viewpoint.

Mint State grades: While Mint State coins are seen with regularity, most are not choice, and are poorly struck, especially at the center of the reverse. Heavy bagmarks are common. Cherrypicking will pay dividends.

Most 1928-S Peace dollars seen today are in the MS-60 to MS-63 range. MS-64 pieces are scarce, and MS-65 coins are rare, exceptionally so if sharply struck. In his 1982 study, The Morgan and Peace Dollar Textbook, Wayne Miller considered this to be one of the top three rarest dollars of this design in high levels of Mint State. My own studies indicate that the 1928-S may be the most elusive Peace dollar at the MS-65 level.

Caveat emptor: John Kamin, publisher of The Forecaster newsletter, told of the following curious situation: (Letter to the author, September 8, 1992.)

I noticed an unusual thing happening in California during the 1960s and even the early 1970s. By that time, 1928 Philadelphia Mint Peace dollars were greatly desired by collectors as the lowest mintage coin and as one of the more expensive coins in the set. At that time, 1928-S Peace dollars were only 1/6th as expensive as the 1928 Philadelphia coins. Sure enough, coin alterers began trying to shave the tiny S off the 1928-S, and resell the coins as 1928 Philadelphia issues. Then, the genuine 1928 dollars were worth about $100 each, while the 1928-S dollars were worth $13 to $20 or so apiece. I examined every 1928 Philadelphia coin offered to me during those years with a magnifier or microscope, and rejected a number that seemed to have a ground-off mark.
But after the appearance of the Redfield Hoard of coins, an unusual thing happened. The 1928-S dollar became more sought after by collectors and dealers, and its price soared enough to delete the profit of any of those fraudulent coin alterers.

Today, the reversed relationship has progressed to the point during the 1990s where the 1928-S silver dollar is thought to be much scarcer than the 1928 Philadelphia, and is priced in the higher grades at several times the price of the 1928 Philadelphia dollar. It is one of those rare cases where a problem, given time, solves itself. Perhaps the bums will now try to reattach S mintmarks. Now buyers must carefully check the 1928-S mintmark on any 1928-S coins one buys!

1. Micro s: Breen-5731. Hub combination II-B2. VAM-1. The variety usually seen. Common. VAM-2 has mintmark slightly higher in position. VAM-3 has portions of motto doubled.

1928-S ICG MS63 S$1 Peace

This 1928-S Peace Dollar is a beautiful coin in ICG MS63. It has a rich silver color and a bright, glowing luster. It has frosty fields and a nice strike. It has a more significant hit in the field on the left side of the obverse. This hit is easy to look over with the complimenting color and luster of the coin. This coin has great eye appeal and would be a lovely addition to your collection.
