Picked this one up at a local show today, a modest upgrade as this one is graded VF-30, my other is graded F-15.

I can't see the die crack in the lower leaves, so I am going with O-101. (shrug)

I always wonder,  when I see a trade dollar this worn, if this one made it overseas a time or two.

Great looking coin. (thumbsu

I think 1876-S is a pretty common date, so with the damage I wouldn't submit it as the grading fee would be a pretty big percentage of the value of the coin.

can someone please tell me if it is worth submitting this 1876 s trade dollar for grading with the damage on the obverse

clearly someone scratched their initials in the face of the coin. any opinion is welcome since I am very new to the coin world

Graffiti is not the same as a chop mark. 

To me, they are both damage and should both get a details grade. 

However, the TPGs are ok with chopmarks, they are not okay with graffiti. This is a low grade common damaged coin, not worth sending in.

I cant believe they grade with chopmarks. My comment was meant to be a jab at grading philosophy. lol

This one arrived in the mail yesterday, has the type of toning I like.  If any of you brave souls would like to attempt to attribute this one, please have at it!

I am thinking O-131, but that is subject to change with more study.

Edit: I have decided to stick with that answer.

Nice grab. Just shows to go ya that grade can be almost meaningless sometimes. Might be worth more in a Star holder but you wont sell that coin anyway !

Yeah I bought it as a keeper. Paid a stiff premium for it but it fills a long time hole for me at 22p. The 62+ grade doesn't matter much on that year. It will stay in PCGS as a reminder to them that "ALL peace dollars with color are AT".
