Stunning Gem Proof 1903 Jefferson Gold Dollar

1903 G$1 Louisiana Purchase/Jefferson PR65 NGC. One hundred proof Jefferson and one hundred proof McKinley gold dollars were struck in 1903. Apparently most proofs were mishandled, damaged, or circulated, which means that the few survivors that are extant are held in strong hands and are infrequently available today, even in major auctions. Unlike other proof commemoratives, proof Jefferson and McKinley dollars are not easily confused with well produced business strikes. These coins "carry their own credentials." And so it is with this piece. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices display a moderate amount of frost which produces a lovely cameo effect between the fields and devices. A few lint marks are scattered about the fields, visible remains of a Mint employee who wiped the dies prior to striking, static electricity then causing pieces of lint to adhere to the dies which were then struck into the coin. An exceptional coin and a rare opportunity for the advanced commemorative collector. (PCGS# 7482)
