||1922 G$1 Grant With Star MS67 NGC. CAC. This Superb Grant With Star gold dollar boasts intense, shimmering mint luster and lovely yellow-gold toning. Outstanding curation is responsible for the clean, mark-free appearance of this dazzling piece, which appears virtually flawless on both obverse and reverse. This issue, created in order to finance the construction of a hometown memorial to the late President Ulysses S. Grant, hero of the Civil War, was distributed in the rather small quantities of 5,016 coins apiece for the With Star and No Star varieties. Relatively few examples of either type survive in this impressively high state of preservation. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
