Lot Description
1903 G$1 Louisiana Purchase/McKinley MS68 NGC. While both varieties of the Louisiana Purchase gold dollars are known to "come nice," this is a coin that defies all expectations. It offers decidedly better preservation and eye appeal than the Gems and even Premium Gems more commonly seen in the marketplace. Peach-tinged yellow-gold surfaces are virtually flawless to the unaided eye. Warmly lustrous fields yield to sharply struck devices that exhibit a twinkling of frost. As one of just four MS68 coins in the combined certified population with none finer (2/10), a definite feather in the cap for the high-end commemorative gold collector.
