how do you know if a coin has been polished?

I am new to collecting coins, I came into a 1921 Peace Dollar (which I know are rare) one person said it was not worth anything because it looked like it has been polished or cleaned up, another disagrees. To me it looks like a proof. I have proof from 1956 till now so I know what they look like. Now how can you tell if it really has been cleaned or polished whatever they call it. Those peopel that agreed and disagreed were coin dealers. So they confused me.

How much is my error coin worth?

There most likely not worth anything but I was watching a show on the discovery channel i think, and it was explaining how people collect and sell error coins because there so rare. So I have to quarters two are pretty messed up. One of them looks really scratched up and bits and pieces all around the quarter are very silver and you can read out the text. The other quarter seems to show a greenish orange material on the front and back and on the side you can see the copper in the middle.
