The First Goodacre Presentation Dollar

6 posts in this topic

...graded by NGC.


As past readers of my journal will know, I’m working on completing the 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins set. I recently bought a Goodacre Presentation Sacagawea dollar in its original ICG holder, #2,358 of 5,000 and sent it off to NGC for grading. NGC had not previously graded this variety before the publishing of the book.


My Goodacre Presentation dollar received a grade of MS 68 DPL. Cool!


NGC confirmed for me that this was the very first Goodacre Presentation dollar they have ever graded, which is a neat little tidbit of information for this coin’s history. In fact, co-author of the 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins book, Scott Schechter (vice president at NGC), wrote me personally and said:


“I did see it when it was at NGC. It was a nice example and very deep prooflike.”


Again... cool!


I’m currently only 18 coins into the 100 Greatest set, but I’m having a lot of fun hunting them down and learning the history of each piece as I go. The gold coins will probably have to wait until after spot prices pull back a little, the 2009 UHR has gone up over $300 in price on some dealer’s websites in just the last month. Ouch. But the silver and clad pieces on the list seem to be holding steady.


I don’t have it in hand yet, it’s still making its way home from Florida. But here’s NGC’s scan: http://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/CertResults.aspx?CertNumber=2560958-001


Anyway, just wanted to share the above info with everyone. Happy collecting!


[for some reason my journals don't post to the forums, so I manually post the ones I think might interest more than just my few followers on the registry]
