Colorado. Victor. 1900 A.B. Bumstead. Jos. Lesher’s Referendum Souvenir Medal or Dollar. Zerbe-3, HK-789. Rarity-5. MS-60 NGC. Serial No. 737.

Dies as illustrated. No flourishes at fasces on reverse. Probably judiciously wiped long ago by a well-meaning collector, but certainly a piece that has never suffered an introduction to local commerce. The surfaces are lustrous silver with a hint of pale golden iridescence here and there. Some light wipe hairlines and minor mishandling incidents are seen, but overall this sharply struck souvenir easily merits the Uncirculated grade. The “commonest” Lesher Medal, with 158 pieces known as of this date. The medal’s “Price” of $1.25 was a constant on all of the 1900-dated Lesher varieties.
NGC Census: 1; 13 finer (MS-64 finest). This type is very similar to the 1st reverse and was struck from the same obverse die. The only difference is, on the reverse, the absence of scrolls in the upper fields and a line above “COLO”.
The reverse die broke in the course of production and a substitute was hastily made, omitting the flourishes and creating a second variety.
