1934-S Peace Silver Dollar. MS-65+ (PCGS). CAC. This is an angelic Superb Gem with untoned, silver-white surfaces and uniform silky luster across each side. Flashy and attractive in-hand, with none but the most insignificant imperfections. A low mintage date from this series with 1,011,000 pieces struck for circulation with most melted or circulated soon after the time of issue. In absolute terms the 1934-S is not the rarest date in high grade, but one of the rarest of the series. At the MS-66 level, there is but a single example finer at PCGS (MS-66+). Historically the 1934-S has been considered to be one of the rarest coins in the Peace dollar collection to obtain in high grade, and for good reason, they are rare. With the absolute data of the Census and Population Reports, the rarest Gem Peace dollar is confirmed as the 1928-S, with the 1924-S and 1925-S also formidable rarities at the gem level. Obtaining an original Gem like the present coin would make for a cornerstone purchase of any advanced collection.
