1898 Trans-Mississippi Expo Medal HK-283 NGC MS65 SOLD
1898 Trans-Mississippi Expo Medal HK-283 NGC MS65
The Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition was a World’s Fair held in Omaha, Nebraska in 1898. Official medals for the Exposition were struck by the United States Mint at the Exposition in various metal compositions. This example of the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Exposition Official Medal was struck in brass and is listed as HK-283 in the Hibler-Kappen reference on So-Called Dollars. This 1898 HK-283 medal has been graded MS65 by NGC. Although the piece is graded MS65, it sure looks better than that in hand with spectacular cartwheel luster, prooflike fields and attractive gold color. Gilt versions of the HK-283 medal are also known and it appears this example may be one of those given the bright golden color. Even on a close inspection, I can not find anything negative about this popular so-called dollar and its remarkable eye appeal.
