1923 Peace Dollar Headache

I was fortunate to pick up a few coins the other night at a local auction. I decided to take a look at the Peace dollars and have been stuck on the first one most of the day. I'm just starting to learn about VAMS and after checking all I could on VAM World, I just can't locate any info on this coin.

It has what appears to be rays clashed under TRVST and onto the neckline. The reverse appears to have a full length die break on both sides of the eagle.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

P.S. I had four more close ups of the reverse that I tried to load five times, but was unable to. Is there a seven picture limit? Thanks!

You're looking at contact marks by the TRVST, these are into the coin and are sliding marks that are mechanical in nature. On the reverse there's a glue substance on the coin, this can be removed.
