    Shimmering Gem 1905 Lewis and Clark Dollar

    1905 G$1 Lewis and Clark MS65 PCGS. The Guide Book reports similar mintages for the 1904 and 1905 Lewis and Clark gold dollars. The 1905, however, is noticeably scarcer in MS65 and higher grades. In fact, the 1905 Lewis and Clark is the scarcest commemorative gold dollar in MS65. This is not surprising, because the date is early in the commemorative series, yet closes a three-year run of commemorative issues of the denomination. Many collectors were sated by the two 1903 Louisiana Purchase issues and the 1904 Lewis and Clark dollar, and passed on the 1905 issue. Of the 25,000 pieces struck, more than half were eventually melted as unsold. The present mildly prooflike piece is well struck on the devices, and shows only minor weakness on the left side dentils. A few faint marks on the left portion of the Lewis side are all that preclude an even higher assessment.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLG, PCGS# 7448)
