Description:
Sublime 1904 Lewis and Clark Dollar, MS67
1904 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS67 NGC. So...which of the dashing (but unlabeled) portraits represents Lewis, and which is Clark? As Swiatek-Breen put it succinctly: "In this, our nation's only two-headed coin, the obverse is legally the date side, and this side portrays--after a fashion--Captain Meriwether Lewis, who had been Thomas Jefferson's secretary despite his appallingly poor spelling. The side with ONE DOLLAR supposedly portrays Captain William Clark." With that bit of confusion out of the way, this lovely Superb Gem is among the best-preserved survivors of this century-old commemorative. Both wheat-gold sides display strong luster, and the portraits have above-average detail. Only a few tiny marks appear in the fields, and none of these are individually distracting. A great choice for a high-end set of commemorative gold. Census: 19 in 67, 1 finer (11/06).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26HC, PCGS# 7447)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
