HK-325, 1905 Lewis & Clark Expo Souvenir in Silver, NGC AU-53

473.00

HK-325, Official Medal of the 1905 Lewis & Clark Exposition in Portland, OR, struck in Silver. This spent a mercifully short period of time as a pocket piece as is very common with issues from this World's Fair, before being set aside, leaving the surfaces largely unaffected. Original, which is unusual for a circulated HK-325. Almost all circulated specimens I encounter in Oregon are impaired to some degree, usually cleaned leaving obnoxious hairlines (none on this piece). Also catalogued as SH 14-1 in Jeff Shevlin's new text on West Coast Exposition medals, where valued at $425 in AU-50, $650 in MS-60.
