    Choice Pattern "Plumed Hat" Dollar

    Republic Yuan-Shih kai silver Specimen Pattern "L. Giorgi - Plumed Hat" Dollar ND (1914) SP63 PCGS, KM-Pn28, L&M-859. Pattern for the Founding of the Republic commemorative issue. Obv. Facing portrait of Yuan Shih-kai with military dress and plumed hat, small L. GIORGI (the name of the Italian coin designer), near edge, over left shoulder. Rev. Value (one Yuan), in Chinese, within open wreath, Chinese legend above, ONE DOLLAR, in English, below. Struck to the greatest degree of detail, this marvelous specimen presents a needle-sharpness to its design that instantly informs the viewer as to its special production. The fields, argent and freshly lustrous, reveal a semi-mirrored finish, a particular prevalence of die-polish visible across the reverse, the overall preservation and eye appeal excellent, not just for the type in general but even for the choice grade assigned. Though we have seen technically finer examples, it would be difficult to locate one offering meaningfully better visual appeal than the present piece.
