    Rare, Choice Proof 1903 McKinley Gold Dollar

    1903 G$1 Louisiana Purchase/McKinley PR64 Cameo NGC. Only 100 brilliant proofs were struck of each 1903 commemorative Gold Dollar and the vast majority of these pieces have been mishandled over the years. In contrast, a careful collector certainly preserved this lovely piece that we count among the nicest survivors of this issue. This variety depicts the recently assassinated President William McKinley, who approved the Louisiana Purchase Exposition that was held in St. Louis in 1904. The devices display a thin veil of mint frost that distinguishes them from the deeply mirrored fields and warrants the Cameo designation. With a crisp strike, this Choice piece is one or two wispy hairlines and some cloudiness in the reverse field away from a Gem rating. A rare opportunity for the commemorative enthusiast whose collection goes beyond the normal scope. Population, cameo and non-cameo: 6 in 64, 6 finer (4/05).(#7483)
