1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. President Roosevelt Dollar. Silver. 38 mm. HK-308. Rarity-7. Proof-60 Cameo (NGC). Pearl gray reflective fields darkening towards the peripheries. The frosted devices contrast boldly with the reflective fields. Minor hairlines evident under low magnification. The Louisiana Purchase Exposition was held in St. Louis, Missouri and opened belatedly on April 30, 1904, a year after its scheduled opening date. Hundreds of medallic tributes were made including the official souvenir medals and souvenir coins of admission. Other types among the so-called dollar discipline included the Missouri, Good-Luck, and Pax "dollars," as well as the rare Roosevelt silver "dollar" offered here. From the Richard Jewell Collection.
