||1922 G$1 Grant With Star MS67+ NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This issue is highly popular, perhaps in part due to the excellence of the original design by Laura Gardin Fraser, who went on to design the beautiful Oregon Trail Memorial half dollars (in conjunction with her husband James Earle Fraser), among others. This wonderfully preserved and flawlessly struck representative sits very near the top of the existing Census listing at NGC: only 10 coins have been graded finer at MS68 by that company, and PCGS has seen just one piece finer, also at MS68 as of (8/14). At arm's-length this coin presents a remarkably effulgent appearance, and lovely yellow-gold coloration that uniformly adorns each side of the piece. 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 @ $25.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
