Extremely Fine: As a Peace dollar begins to show light amounts of wear collectors grade the condition as 'extremely fine.' The hair trailing behind Miss Liberty's neck is one of the high points of the design, wear begins here quickly and creates a flattening appearance of the curls. Hair directly above the eye is another place to examine, a small flat spot is acceptable for the grade.

Fine: Wear has smoothed and reduced metal over all parts of design. If not to severe your coin is in 'fine' condition. Detail within the hair is still visible, major strands are still separated, although the finer strands have merged. Liberty's cheek and neck now displays a few areas of flatness.
