    1903 Louisiana Purchase Gold Dollar
    Elusive in Superb Gem Condition

    1903 G$1 Louisiana Purchase, Jefferson, MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Louisiana Purchase issues, which revived an abolished denomination and displayed the nation's first gold commemorative designs, were minted to the maximum quantity permitted by the authorizing law, and the distributors had high hopes for sales; however, the vast majority of pieces struck were later melted.
    This Superb Gem survivor is boldly impressed throughout, and the strongly lustrous yellow-gold surfaces offer occasional canary accents. Exquisitely preserved with elegant and undeniable visual appeal. CAC endorsed. No examples are reported numerically finer grade by PCGS (10/15).
    Ex: Houston Signature (Heritage, 11/2007), lot 61382; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2012), lot 4582.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLD, PCGS# 7443)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
