Very Pretty Toned 1907-1607 Jamestown Exposition So-Called Dollar #523
This coin has no wear but is toned and looks to have been handled a bit that dulled the luster, but look at the features of the ship and how the smallest of details are crisp as struck. If you're partial to sailing vessels on coins, we still have dozens of them on medals from the Kennel Collection and we are always happy to assemble groups by whatever criteria you might have--similar designs, similar tones and color, years, subjectmatter, etc. We know of collectors who have assembled terrific medals from various expositions all featuring ships, for example. US commemorative half dollars provide a nice group along with the myriad examples from the Columbian Expo. None is more popular or inexpensive than the country's first commem, the 1892 Columbian half dollar. We have a nice selection of both 1892 and 1893 Columbian halaves in virually all grades from well-circulated to absolute gems.
