1900 Lafayette Dollar, MS66
A Nicely Toned, Obviously Original Example

1900 $1 Lafayette Dollar MS66 NGC. DuVall 1-B. This is an awe inspiring example of this popular, crown-sized early commemorative. Commemoratives have long been one of the most popular series for collectors and the appearance of a premium quality Lafayette has always stirred excitement. Both sides are beautifully toned in scattered emerald-green and russet colors. The underlying surfaces exhibit a vibrant, satiny appearance, being remarkably free of coin-to-coin contact. The typical Lafayette dollar, an issue that was sold in great numbers to the non-collecting general public, is often found lightly circulated and all too often cleaned. Even a pleasing MS63 specimen can be difficult to find. High-end coins, above the grade of MS65, are of the utmost rarity and quickly absorbed by the serious commemorative collector. To this we add that the Lafayette dollar is one of the keys to the U.S. commemorative set in the finer Mint State grades; few coins display surfaces as smooth and blatantly original as those of the present MS66 specimen. Destined for the finest set. Census: 61 in 66 (3 in 66+), 8 finer (2/13).
Ex: Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 7/2003), lot 9114; Fort Worth Signature (Heritage, 3/2010), lot 1744.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYKW, PCGS# 9222)
