    1900 HK-789 Lesher Dollar, MS63
    Type Two A.B. Bumstead, #627

    1900 $1 Lesher Dollar, A.B. Bumstead, Type Two, Serial #627, Silver, Z-3, HK-789, R.5, MS63 PCGS. CAC. A splendid sea-green, sun-gold, and cherry-red example with a sharp strike and smooth, glossy surfaces. A.B. Bumstead, a Victor, Colorado grocer, was the most prolific issuer of Lesher dollars. Adna Wilde's February 1978 Numismatist article does not list a pedigree for #627, but the LesherDollars.com website lists a pedigree of Zerbe - Sheldon - Folcraft with no further information. Zerbe is presumably Farran Zerbe, and Sheldon is most likely M. Vernon Sheldon. Listed on page 428 of the 2020 Guide Book. Population: 12 in 63 (1 in 63+), 3 finer. CAC: 4 in 63, 1 finer (11/19).
    From The Cripple Creek Collection. (NGC ID# 2F6F, PCGS# 19002)
