Description:

Original MS66 1905 Lewis and Clark Gold Dollar
Key Issue in the Small Gold Series
1905 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS66 NGC. Sometimes the Mint is slow to catch on to what products the public will purchase and in what quantities. Collectors had just paid $3 each for the 1903 Louisiana Purchase gold dollars and then the price dropped to only $2. The following year the Mint produced two more gold dollars, a 1904 and a 1905 issue to commemorate the Lewis and Clark Expedition. These pieces were offered at $2 each, but only 10,000 were sold of the 1905 after 15,000 were sold of the 1904--many thousands of each were melted as unsold. Today, however, the 1905 is the key to the commemorative gold dollar series. This splendid Gem shows bright yellow-gold color overall with an occasional dab of reddish patina and the often- seen metal flow around the peripheral devices. This is a remarkably well-preserved example with no observable defects on either side. Census: 50 in 66, 3 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26HD, PCGS# 7448)
