    1922 Grant With Star Gold Dollar, MS68
    One of Finest Certified

    1922 G$1 Grant With Star MS68 NGC. Among the many distinctions of artist Laura Gardin Fraser is that she was the only woman to design one of the classic gold commemoratives, the Grant gold dollar. (In the modern era, Chief Engraver Elizabeth Jones designed the Statue of Liberty five dollar.) The two Grant gold dollar subtypes are of roughly equal rarity overall, and the With Star type is undeniably elusive at the MS68 level shown by the present piece. The strike is above-average, and deep butter-yellow and honey-orange luster adds life to each side. A couple of faint tiny planchet voids in the left obverse field between the U in UNITED and Grant's head may help pedigree the coin. Census: 8 in 68, 0 finer (2/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# BYPS, PCGS# 7459)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
