Description 1922 G$1 Grant No Star MS66+ NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This type represents the first occasion when a commemorative coin design was used on both silver and gold issues. There were actually a total of four "varieties" of this design produced: two gold dollars and two half dollars. Each denomination saw one variety struck with an imbedded star device on the right side of the obverse, and another without the star. The stars themselves have no known significance. This is a bright, highly lustrous Gem showing fine chartreuse toning and a small reddish alloy splash on the lower right reverse quadrant. Both sides of the coin are well-preserved and free of any distractions. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $30.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
