Uncirculated: 1923 Peace silver dollar value and collector appeal rises well above its base metal price in this grade.

It is easiest so see when viewed under a light, and tilting the coin side to side. Liberty's cheek, a high point of design, is quick to loose luster from wear causing a dull grey appearance.
Extremely Fine: A slight amount of detail is missing from the tops of the raised portions of the design. If not wide spread a grade of "extremely fine" describes its condition. View Liberty's cheek, and back of her hair, wear forms a smoother texture than the surrounding areas. Overall a pleasing coin, displaying a vibrant appearance when viewed at a distance.

Fine: First impression of this 'fine" condition is, yes there is wear but not extensive nor unappealing. As you look closely all raised portions are affected by wear, quickly noticeable is the flattened areas of hair and cheek and also above the eye. Focusing your attention now to the tops of the lettering, motto and date, they have a leveled and smooth quality.
Good: Very worn and flattened, with most strands of hair merged defines the "good" grade.
