    1900 Lesher Dollar, MS62
    Bumstead, HK-788, Type One, #132
    Popular 'Free Silver' Issuer

    1900 $1 Lesher Dollar, A.B. Bumstead, Type One, Serial #132, Silver, Z-2, HK-788, R.5, MS62 NGC. Joseph Lesher (1838 to 1918) was a Civil War veteran and a Victor, Colorado silver mine owner. His advocacy of 'free silver' coinage led to his issue of octagonal one-ounce silver coins. His cause was backed by local grocer Bumstead, the most-often seen among several merchants who participated in Lesher's efforts. This cream-gray, lilac, and apple-green example exudes eye appeal that surpasses the numerical grade. Listed on page 428 of the 2020 Guide Book. Census: 5 in 62, 3 finer (7/19).
