||SILVER DOLLARS - PEACE LIBERTY HEAD
||S$1 1921 PEACE HIGH RELIEF
||NGC MS 65
The 1921 Peace Dollar is the only circulation Peace dollar issued in high relief. This year is the only one that was made the way the designer intended the coin to look. Because of the high relief and the larger pressure required to produce a full strike, many 1921 Peace dollars show a weak strike especially in the hair over the ear and the wing feathers over the eagle's right leg. As of 12-14-06 NGC has graded 8425 1921 P Peace dollars. 861 in MS65 with 97 grading higher. This example is brilliant white and was purchased in May of 2006. The relief was changed due to high die wear and breakage and complaints in how the high relief coins stacked.
