Colorado. Victor. 1901 Engraved Type. H. H. Rosser. Jos. Lesher’s Referendum Silver Souvenir Medal or Dollar. Zerbe-16, HK-1021. Rarity-10, Unique. EF-45 NGC. No Serial No.

Dies as illustrated. The evenly circulated surfaces offer subdued luster on their golden-gray surfaces. No marks of any nature mar the flawless fields and devices; this may have been a pocket-piece for Mr. Rosser. This is known to have been engraved for Henry Hopkins Rosser, who opened a cigar store in Victor in 1901; obtained from either Victor Exclusive Agent Sam Cohen or Lesher himself, Rosser probably had it engraved as a souvenir of his new venture. Unique, and the only example of Zerbe-16 available to this or any other generation of collectors. Once this opportunity passes, it may never come your way again – pieces such as this tend to stay in advanced cabinets for advanced lengths of time. Bid as though you mean it for this Lesher medal!
NGC Census: 1; no others in any grade. This variety is the same as Zerbe #5 except engraved in script “H. Stein.”
Unfortunately H. Stein cannot be definitely identified; attempts to attribute this piece to various Henry Steins can be verified. This is the only “Stein” Lesher Dollar known, numbered 1050.
