    Elusive Gem 1905 Lewis and Clark Dollar

    1905 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS65 PCGS. Although Lewis and Clark gold dollars are not uncommon in lower Mint State grades, in strict MS65 condition they are elusive. PCGS has graded only 57 pieces finer than the present Gem example. Among the early commemorative gold dollars in Gem condition, the 1905 Lewis and Clark is the key, with the 1904 Lewis and Clark a close second and all others distant in the pack. In fact, there are five times as many Gem 1915-S Panama-Pacific gold dollars graded at PCGS as of this issue. This luscious Gem representative offers a radiant apricot-gold obverse complemented by a canary-yellow reverse. Careful scrutiny under a loupe fails to reveal more than the most minuscule, grade-consistent ticks and abrasions.
