Colorado. Victor. 1901 Imprint Type. Geo. Mullen. Jos. Lesher’s Referendum Silver Souvenir Medal or Dollar. Zerbe-9, HK-795. Rarity-6. MS-61 NGC. Serial No. 1502.

Dies as illustrated. A lustrous and reflective specimen with silver-gray surfaces alight with lively and varied golden toning throughout. One of just three Mint State examples of the variety seen thus far by NGC, with a small number of circulated pieces certified as well by the firm. This particular example has a story to relay. When viewed carefully through a loupe, we note GEO. MULLEN / VICTOR COLO. was first punched far too low in the field with the letters interfering with the space reserved for the serial number. Portions of the original punching are evident on this specimen, though the force of the second strike eliminated all but tell-tale traces of the first impression. A neat example of a relatively rare issue
NGC Census: 2; 1 finer (MS-63). This variety is the same as Zerbe #5 except stamped “Geo. Mullen Victor, Colo.” The imprint is an error for George McMullen, a shoemaker in Victor. At least 50 pieces were imprinted for him, based on recorded serial numbers, but there are 3 unnumbered pieces also, so perhaps he made a second order. Only 25 examples, numbered and unnumbered, are known.
