1933 Colorado Type IV HK-870 PCGS MS64 SOLD
1933 Colorado Type IV HK-870 PCGS MS64
The 1933 Colorado Century of Progress Dollars were produced to raise funds in order to enable the State of Colorado to represent itself at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. Four distinct types of the medal were produced, each containing an ounce of pure silver. This example of the 1933 Colorado Century of Progress Dollar is the Type IV variety of the medal and is listed as HK-870 in the Hibler-Kappen reference on So-Called Dollars. This 1933 HK-870 Medal has been graded MS64 by PCGS and is an amazingly attractive piece. The medal has been imaged by PCGS for their CoinFacts subscription service and I have included their photo. The coin is fully proof-like on both sides and has lovely lilac colored toning, particularly near the rims. Most of the lines you see on the coin in the photos are die polish lines raised up on the surfaces of the coin and are as issued. Only a light scratch near the C of CENTURY on the obverse and another small mark near the 1 of 1833 on the obverse seemingly limited the grade of this medal as it has the overall look of a much higher grade. Moreover, the mining scene on the obverse and the Colorado state seal on the reverse both exhibit remarkable detail. It is believed that 10,000 examples of the HK-870 were struck, but an unknown quantity were actually issued and an unknown quantity were later melted. A very eye appealing piece.
