The silver Peace dollar issued from 1921 through 1935 was a coin that commemorated the end of the most traumatic war in human history. In the Guide Book of Peace Dollars, award-winning author Roger W. Burdette explores these fascinating and collectible coins, covering every date and mintmark of America s last 90% silver dollar. He also studies the mysterious 1964-D Peace dollar, as well as Proofs, patterns, trial pieces, errors and misstrikes, countermarks, die varieties, and famous collections. Burdette explores the origins and history of the Peace dollar (including the American Numismatic Association s involvement), early designs and casts, the coin s production process, ways to collect, preservation, the market effect of hoards and meltings, and unusual examples. Other features include a coin-by-coin analysis with market values and certified population data, biographies of key participants in the Peace dollar s story, Van Allen Mallis numbers, a bibliography, and more. The classic Peace dollar evokes the end of the Great War, the celebrations of the Roaring Twenties, fancy cars and flappers, Great Gatsby style riches, and the dramatic stock-market crash of 1929. Roger Burdette has captured the romance of these large silver coins, including the mysterious 1964, and shows you how to form a valuable, high-quality collection. Q. David Bowers
