1924-S Peace Silver Dollar. MS-65 (NGC). Frosty and lustrous with lively cartwheels supporting wisps of pale rose, gold, and blue iridescence. One of ""those"" dates that is readily available at MS-60 through 64, but from that point upward on the grading scale it becomes highly elusive. Indeed, just one example of the date has been accorded a finer grade by NGC than the present specimen, though the logjam of grading <em>events </em>at the MS-65 level leads us to the obvious conclusion—many have tried repeatedly to make the MS-66 grade, but just one specimen has made the cut. Choice for the grade and about as fine as you will find in today's numismatic marketplace.
