    1904 Lewis and Clark Gold Dollar, MS65
    An Excellent Choice for a Type Set

    1904 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS65 NGC. The Lewis and Clark gold dollars of 1904 and 1905 were extremely unpopular after the hype and overpromotion associated with Farran Zerbe and the 1903 Louisiana Purchase-Jefferson and McKinley dollars. Nevertheless, Zerbe continued to heavily promote the ensuing Lewis and Clark dollars as investments. The vast majority of sales, however, went to the general public, not to numismatists, resulting in most pieces being mishandled.

    The 1905-dated issue is scarcer than the 1904, making the latter date more of a favorite for type purposes. The lustrous, yellow-gold surfaces of the present Gem offering exhibit sharply struck devices and reveal fewer marks than what might be expected for the grade designation. All in all, this is a very handsome piece that may well serve as the hallmark of a commemorative type collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLF, PCGS# 7447)
