Lot Description
1978-D $1 MS67 NGC. Frank Gasparro designed the Eisenhower dollars. Casinos were among the intended recipients of these pieces. Not surprisingly given the amount of surface area, many of the coins exhibit bagmarks, particularly the earlier dated examples. Lustrous apricot-gold surfaces appear on this Superb Gem along with areas of red, bright yellow, and silver blue-green colors. The piece displays a well-executed strike. Although contact marks are present, none are worthy of individual mention. NGC has awarded the MS67 grade to only three other examples and PCGS has graded a single example at this level, with neither service having awarded a higher numeric grade to a single example (12/12).
