Can Be Nice, But...
I have been searching for an attractive 1926 Peace Dollar for a couple of years. A number of coins were scanned; many I found to be unattractive, or priced wrong, or something just was not quite right. I came close to making a purchase on a couple of occasions, but as of the new year, I am still looking.
Thursday night I was looking at the Pinnacle website, and there was a new listing of Peace Dollars! They are absolutely beautiful!!! I viewed these coins again and again; finally, selecting 4 coins of interest.
Again, I viewed the images; checked price guides; and checked recent auction results. Some of the 4 were duplicates, so I contemplated an upgrade decision. Eventually, I decided on the 1926 and one upgrade coin.
Friday morning, I talked with Kathleen and learned that I was the #3 offer for the 1926! In coin buying, there is no prize after FIRST place- just my still empty slot. This was the prettiest 1926 that I have spotted, so far.
On the GOOD news side, the upgrade candidate is gorgeous, too! It will be arriving this week and take its place in my Peace Dollar Registry Set.
As for the 1926...Back to the search.
