1922-S Peace Dollar Die Adjustment Strike

Die Adjustment Strikes

Die adjustment strikes occur when a coin is struck from the press with very little pressure. When the press is being set up and adjusted, extremely weak strikes occur as the strike pressure reaches its optimum level. These die trials are destroyed after being struck and are rarely found in circulation.

The coin featured above is one of four known die adjustment strikes for the entire Peace Dollar series.
