1900 Lafayette Silver Dollar. Lafayette. MS-64+ (PCGS). CAC. The 1900 Lafayette dollar is one of the most difficult issues to obtain so close to the Gem grade level. This handsome coin displays light golden peripheral toning with a decided satiny appearance to the luster. The strike is as sharp as these come with, and the surfaces are a delight, as there are no deep nicks or bagmarks marring the fields or cheeks that distract, just a few light scuffs as always seen.
