    1916 McKinley Memorial Gold Dollar
    High-End Superb Gem, None Finer at PCGS

    1916 G$1 McKinley MS67+ PCGS. CAC. While the design was a tenuous collaboration between Charles E. Barber and George T. Morgan (Barber did the obverse, Morgan the reverse), the marketing of the McKinley gold dollars was even less coordinated, with only a total of 15,000 or so pieces sold dated 1916 or 1917. The 1916 pieces outnumber the 1917 issue approximately 2 to 1. This example is one of the finest survivors. Both sides are beautifully patinated in shades of lilac and rose-red over gleaming rich-gold surfaces. The obverse is more frosty, the reverse mostly prooflike. Exceptionally struck and problem-free for the issue, this lustrous Superb Gem McKinley dollar will be the centerpiece of an advanced commemorative gold collection. Population: 90 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer (7/15).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# BYLK, PCGS# 7454)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
