If the luster is complete on both sides it assures the coin is uncirculated.
Extremely Fine: Wear has started to diminish small details of the hair just behind Liberty's ear and forehead. Further behind the ear the folds of the cap are now just slightly flattened. On the revere, small amounts of wear are visible on the tops of the wings, and obvious on the neck and breast feathers.

Good: A 1904 silver dollar in "good" condition is distinctly "flat" in appearance. The original separation of Liberty's hair and forehead has worn away. Her ear still shows, however hair above and behind is smooth and connecting to her cheek. Liberty is visible in the head band but the cotton blossoms are now lost.
