Ungraded Graded 1921 peace

All 1921 Peace Dollars are High Relief, I don't know why NGC puts it on their labels. Low Relief wasn't introduced until 1922.

As far as a grade goes, I would say low AU.

Don't forget that a seller can put whatever price he wants for a coin. It is up to the buyer to determine what it is actually worth to them.

Photos are too small and lacking in detail to do more than guess at cleaned VF. Reminds me of the leftover stuff from Stack's storage lockers. [It's a special label for provenance, not condition.]

   This appears to be a worn--more like VF than AU--and "cleaned" 1921 Peace dollar that NGC put in a holder merely to identify it as having come from a large hoard of various U.S. coins that was dispersed by StacksBowers from the old Stack's location on W. 57th St. in New York City eight or nine years ago.  Many of these coins were given numerical grades by NGC and put in a holder with a red-outlined label saying "Stack's W. 57th St. Collection" and a photo of the storefront. This one is a "cull".

   Yes, all 1921 Peace dollars were struck in higher relief than those regularly issued from 1922-35. They're common enough that you should buy a better one.

If a coin is in a holder from NGC, PCGS or ANACS and the label says "cleaned" or there's no grade, usually best to run away. 1921 Peace dollars have an unusually wide range of normal appearance, and some find them difficult to evaluate. If you are interested in the series, or details look for a copy of A Guide Book to Peace Dollars - Whitman publishing LLC.

PS: Whitman is supposed to be having a "sale" or "special deals" today,  Monday, so you might check them out and save on postage, or bagel chips, or whatever they're featuring.
