Owner Comments:

SCUFFING ABOVE INDEPENDENCE HALL ON THE REVERSE CAUSES THIS TO BE UNC DETAILS. OTHER THAN THAT, QUITE A FINE EXAMPLE OF THIS SCD TYPE.

THE WHITE METAL VERSION OF THESE MEDALS (HK-29) MUST HAVE MOSTLY BEEN SOLD AS POCKET PIECES, BECAUSE IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND THIS TYPE IN A FULL GRADE UNCIRCULATED STATE.

U.S. CENTENNIAL EXPOSITION 1876 PHILADELPHIA, PA

Purpose: To commemorate 100th anniversary of signing of United States Declaration of Independence.

LIBERTY BELL-INDEPENDENCE HALL DOLLARS

Struck and issued by Messrs. Deihl, Philadelphia; designed by Key. Some of pieces with small bell struck as early as 1872; with large bell, 1874, in anticipation of centennial celebration. Liberty Bell, made of bronze, weighs 2,080 pounds, is 3 feet high, measures 12 feet around lip. John Pass and Charles Stow recast bell in 1753, it having cracked year before; in 1835 it cracked beyond repair. It now hangs in Liberty Bell Center, a dedicated museum within Independence National Historical Park near old State House, renamed Independence Hall, where Declaration of Independence was unanimously adopted by Continental Congress, July 4, 1776.
