Owner Comments:

WHITE METAL IS QUITE DARKLY TONED WITH NO TIN PEST, MAKING THIS UNC DETAILS. ALL OF THE FEATURES OF OBVERSE AND REVERSE ARE PRESENT AND SHARP, THEREFORE UNCIRCULATED PER NGC. BEING THIS TONED AND HAVING NO TIN PEST MAKES ME WONDER IF THIS IS REALLY WHITE METAL, OR COULD IT BE SILVER HK-39? I BOUGHT THE MEDAL ALREADY GRADED BY NGC, SO I COULD NOT EXAMINE IT RAW. I MIGHT CRACK THIS OUT AND WEIGH IT AND HAVE IT ANALYZED FOR METAL CONTENT.

ALSO CATALOGUED AS MUSANTE GW-908 AND BAKER 392B.

A MS 61 EXAMPLE OF THIS TYPE SOLD FOR $504.00 BY HERITAGE IN 2017. A MS 61 EXAMPLE SOLD FOR $408.00 BY STACKS BOWERS IN 2018. THERE ARE ONLY 16 OF THIS TYPE LISTED IN THE NGC CENSUS, WITH ONLY 12 OF THOSE GRADED MS 60 OR FINER AS OF 10/2019.

INDEPENDENCE HALL DOLLAR

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.
