Premium Gem 1922 Grant With Star Half Dollar

1922 50C Grant with Star MS66 NGC. The original request from the Ulysses S. Grant Centenary Memorial Association was for 200,000 commemorative gold dollars. Half Dollars were not suggested, however, legislation was changed to authorize just 10,000 gold dollars along with 250,000 half dollars. Profits from the various Grant commemorative issues were earmarked to provide suitable memorial buildings in southern Ohio to celebrate the centennial of the Civil War general and 18th president's birth. Collectors might assume that the rare With Star variety, one of just 4,256 pieces struck, was an addition to the original half dollar design when in reality the more common variety with no star came after the production of the With Star pieces. This wonderfully preserved example boasts uncommon sharpness and vibrancy for the issue, being lightly toned at the borders in speckled violet and blue-green shades. Census: 40 in 66, 5 finer (11/06).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28KC, PCGS# 9307)
