    Finest Known, Superb Proof 1903 McKinley Gold Dollar

    1903 G$1 Louisiana Purchase/McKinley PR67 PCGS. While generally not a worthy issue, the 1903 McKinley gold dollar in proof format is a very rare and very desirable item. Only 100 proofs were struck and attrition has taken a heavy toll on that original number. Very few seem to have survived as recognizable proofs today. In fact, only 52 pieces have been certified by the two major services to date, with an unknown number of resubmissions concealed in that number. This is the single finest example extant today (3/06). The fields are deeply mirrored and glassy with a slight amount of mint frost over the devices. The surfaces, overall, are exceptionally clean and free from any mentionable post-striking impairments. For identification purposes, two crimson-magenta toning spots are noted on the reverse: one over the N of EXPOSITION, the other under the O and U of LOUIS at the rim. These do not detract from the overall beauty of this Superb Gem proof example. (NGC ID# BYMG, PCGS# 7483)
