1904 Louisiana Purchase Expo Official Medal HK-299 NGC MS65 SOLD
1904 Louisiana Purchase Expo Official Medal HK-299 NGC MS65
The 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition Official Souvenir Medal was produced for the 1904 St. Louis fair where the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase was celebrated. These official souvenir medals were struck in various metal compositions including silver, gold, gold-plated bronze, copper, yellow-bronze, bronze and gilt. They were designed by George Morgan and his initial M appears at the base of Jefferson’s shoulder. Approximately 90,000 medals were struck in total at the Mint Exhibit located on the fairgrounds. This example of the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition Official Souvenir Medal was struck in silver and is listed as HK-299 in the Hibler-Kappen reference on So-Called Dollars. This 1904 HK-299 Medal has been graded MS65 by NGC. The medal is moderately toned on both sides in a medium grey color on the obverse and in a purple, green and golden color on the reverse. The color does not show well in my photos but the piece comes to life with impressive color when tilted into a direct light. A few light marks can be found on the high points of the piece, particularly on the obverse portraits of Jefferson and Napoleon, but none are major. A terrific gem example of this desired so-called dollar and official silver medal from the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.
