Top 50 Peace Dollar VAMs


Published in 2002 by Jeff Oxman and Dr. David Close, the Top 50 Peace Dollar varieties set out to accomplish what the Top 100 Morgan dollars did - focus collectors on which Peace Dollar VAMs were worth owning and to create a worthwhile set to acquire. What is noteable are the amazing die breaks in the Peace Dollar series. Collectors have eagerly scooped them up. To this day, Peace Dollars are an exciting new frontier in the VAMworld. This is most in evidence by the 1934-P listing of die varieties, where only 2 are shown! So the hunt continues. In the meantime, we predict it will take even an advanced collector several years to acquire a complete high grade Top 50 set. The challenge is on!
