1901 Pan-American Expo Official Medal HK-289 NGC MS67 SOLD
1901 Pan-American Expo Official Medal HK-289 NGC MS67
The 1901 Pan-American Exposition Official Medal was produced for the 1901 Pan-American Exposition held in Buffalo, New York. The exposition was very well attended, but is most famous for being the setting of President McKinley’s assassination in September 1901. These official souvenir medals were struck in various metal compositions including silver, copper and brass. All of these official medals were struck at the Mint Exhibit located on the fairgrounds. This example of the 1901 Pan-American Exposition Official Medal was struck in brass and is listed as HK-289 in the Hibler-Kappen reference on So-Called Dollars. However, the Swoger reference on National Commemorative Medals claims these medals are not brass but are instead struck in gilt-copper. This 1901 HK-289 Medal has been graded MS67 by NGC and is encapsulated in a newer-style edge-view holder. The medal is very well struck and is quite attractive. With very strong luster and bright golden color, the medal appears as if it was just struck recently and extremely well preserved for a piece over 100 years old. Only a single example of the HK-289 has graded higher at NGC in MS68. Just a couple small marks on the high points of the obverse are of note; otherwise, the medal appears to be virtually flawless. A very nice, high-grade example of this popular so-called dollar.
