Rich straw gold verges on orange on this fully lustrous survivor of a net mintage of just 10,041 pieces for the 1905 Lewis and Clark issue. Strike is about as strong as one is wont to find on this issue that sometimes comes quite flatly struck, and the overall eye appeal is quite strong for the issue. As the value of the gold commemorative series has gradually fallen over the years, Gem specimens like this have become a very good value.
