The 1926 Philadelphia Mint peace dollar issue typically has a satin finish and good luster. The fairly low mintage makes it a slightly better date than the earlier Philadelphia dates in the series. Many coins have a golden patina on the surfaces. All 1926 Peace dollars were produced from a master die with a retouched _GOD’ on the obverse. Coins in higher grades should be easy to locate. Seek out coins with a good luster and a strong strike.
Lightly Circulated 1926 $1 Coins Are Common: EF and AU can be located, oftentimes inexpensively, though these grades tend to be ignored owing to a steady supply of the date in Mint State grades.
