Peace Silver dollar 1922 mysterious mark

3 posts in this topic

The face of this coin has a mark of what looks like a capital “A” followed by GIE in a smaller font but in capitals. It is possible that it is a CIE or perhaps the “ “I” is really lower case  “L”and not a capital “i”. The mark is on the face side of the coin in the blank area right across from her nose. Does this make sense to anyone and if so can you please help me figure it  out??   It is in good shape otherwise so i am hoping to send for grading so all insights are appreciated.  Thanks in advance for any replies

That appears to have been applied with an engraver's tool of the sort used to customize jewelry. It's considered damage to the coin, so your dollar would be Details Graded with a notation of either Damaged or Obverse Graffiti.
