    Delightful Superb Gem 1904 Lewis and Clark Dollar

    1904 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS67 NGC. On the Lewis and Clark dollar, which of the unlabeled portraits represents Lewis, and which is Clark? As Swiatek-Breen put it succinctly: "In this, our nation's only two-headed coin, the obverse is legally the date side, and this side portrays--after a fashion--Captain Meriwether Lewis, who had been Thomas Jefferson's secretary despite his appallingly poor spelling. The side with ONE DOLLAR supposedly portrays Captain William Clark."
    Both portraits show above-average detail on this lovely Superb Gem, among the best-preserved survivors of this century-old commemorative issue. The sun-gold and wheat-gold surfaces offer powerful, slightly satiny luster. NGC has certified just one numerically finer representative (6/08).
