1893 Iowa State Capital HK-620 NGC MS64DPL SOLD
1893 Iowa State Capital HK-620 NGC MS64DPL
This aluminum medal features the Iowa State Capitol building in Des Moines and is listed as HK-620 in the Hibler-Kappen book on So-Called Dollars and has been graded MS64DPL by NGC. Although undated, the NGC label provides a date of 1893 as the reverse design giving the properties of aluminum matches the reverse of the HK-161 so-called dollar issued in connection with the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago that year. The obverse design of the Iowa State Capitol building and it’s cost of $3,000,000 is the same as the obverse design of the HK-619 so-called dollar which is dated 1890. In any event, this piece is strongly struck and shows impressive details of the Capitol building in relatively high relief. The open fields of both the obverse and reverse reveal some minor handling marks, but no major distractions are noted. The fields of this bright white piece are strongly prooflike with somewhat frosty devices. This piece is the sole finest known example of the HK-620 graded by NGC as the only MS64DPL; the next closest specimens are a single MS63DPL example, two (2) MS63PL graded pieces and two (2) MS63 examples. Here is your opportunity to get the finest known example of this so-called dollar.
