1893 Columbian Expo Machinery Hall/Women's Building HK-192 NGC MS66PL SOLD
1893 Columbian Expo Machinery Hall/Women's Building HK-192 NGC MS66PL
The 1893 World Columbian Exposition held in Chicago to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the voyage of Christopher Columbus to the New World was one of the largest and most popular World’s Fairs in history. Many numismatic items were struck in connection with the Columbian Exposition from the first commemorative coins of the United States to nearly a hundred different so-called dollars. This is one of the so-called Exhibition Palace Dollars from the Columbian Exposition featuring the Machinery Hall and the Woman’s Building which is listed as HK-192 in the Hibler-Kappen book on So-Called Dollars and has been graded MS66PL by NGC and is encapsulated in one of the newer-style edge-view holders. The obverse features a detailed rendition of the Machinery Hall with notes that it was 800 feet long, 500 feet wide and cost $1,200,000. The reverse is a detailed rendition of the Woman’s Building with notes that it was 200 by 400 feet and cost $120,000. This piece is bright white and very lustrous. The piece also has strong prooflike mirrored fields with frosty devices. This piece is by far the finest known example of the HK-192 graded by NGC as the only MS66PL; the next closest specimens are a single MS65 example and a single MS64PL piece. Your chance to obtain the finest example known by far of this so-called dollar from the Columbian Exposition.
