History, Information, and Value of 1928-S Peace Dollar
Value of 1928 San Francisco Mint Peace Silver Dollar
As with most previous S-Mint issues (1926-S being the exception), the 1928-S Peace dollar was poorly produced and is often seen weakly struck. Luster quality is usually good. This issue is available in MS-63 and MS-64. Find a rare MS-65 and it’s likely to cost 10 times more than coins at the lower grades. The 1928-S is the rarest date Peace dollar issue in Gem condition. This was the final year of issue of Peace dollars struck under the provisions of the 1918 Pittman Act.
