1904 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS67 S NGC. CAC. The net distribution total for the 1904 Lewis and Clark commemorative gold dollar was only 10,025 examples. In his series reference on commemoratives, Q. David Bowers notes, "... among all commemorative gold coins of this denomination, the Lewis and Clark issues of 1904 and 1905 are singularly distinctive for their rarity in higher grades." Currently, NGC has graded only 24 examples in Superb Gem condition, with a single specimen finer (6/10). The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem, with vibrant, frosty mint luster and abundant eye appeal. The striking details are razor-sharp, and the pleasing surfaces are a rich orange-gold color.
