    Gorgeous 1903 Louisiana Purchase/McKinley Commemorative Gold Dollar

    1903 G$1 Louisiana Purchase/McKinley MS66 PCGS. A simply spectacular example that is about as delightful today as the moment it came from the dies. Although the mintage for the issue was 17,500 it's a well established fact that many examples ended up in the hands of non-numismatists who used them in jewelry, polished them, spent them when a financial need occurred, or carelessly tossed them in a dresser drawer with the result that today, examples grading as fine as MS66 are far and few between. This specimen displays lustrous, yellow-gold surfaces with subtle greenish undertones. The design features are well impressed, and there are no mentionable marks to report. PCGS has certified only 62 pieces finer (6/05).(#7444)(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# BYLE, PCGS# 7444)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
