Rare Lafayette Dollar Variety in DLRC Auctions this Week

Duvall 4-E Variety is Just the Second Reported Specimen

Virginia Beach, VA. DLRC Auctions is proud to offer this week the second known example of the rare Duvall 4-E variety of the Lafayette dollar. This variety was thought to be unique until the discovery of this coin, which has been graded AU58 Cleaned by Dominion Grading Service (DGS).

1900 $1 Lafayette Duvall 4-E Variety (Obverse)

 

According to John Feigenbaum, President of David Lawrence Rare Coins, the coin has "the initial appearance of a mint state coin but the luster is almost too nice and lacks the frosty surfaces of a true mint state.

The coin has virtually no wear and has been very lightly cleaned to show evidence of wipe lines upon close examination in proper lighting.
