Date 1900

1900 $1 Lafayette Dollar MS62+ NGC. CAC. DuVall 1-B. The leaf points between 19 in the date, and the branch stem is thin, which signify the 1-B. Circulated or cleaned examples of the 1900 Lafayette dollar are plentiful. Many were distributed to non-collectors, and coins often ended up being spent or mishandled. Entirely original representatives like this are elusive. Warm antique gold and violet-gray tones produce wonderful visual appeal. Partial luster glows from surfaces that nearly qualify for a Select assessment. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
