Vast numbers of this early San Francisco Mint Peace dollar issue were lost in government melts of World War II. Today a silver dollar encyclopedia estimates that as few as 0.2% (one in 500) of the original 1923-S production may exist today in mint-state quality. Yet the 1923-S Peace dollar is reasonably affordable in our Brilliant Uncirculated quality. The reason is that a good number survive in circulated grades. Nice original luster and no sign of wear.
