1903 New York Stock Exchange Medal, HK-297, One of 80 Struck in Silver

SOLD

Details

1903 New York Stock Exchange medal. Silver, 38 mm. HK-297. Choice Mint State. A fascinating 20th century rarity, struck for noted numismatist Charles Gregory, who not only held a seat on the New York Stock Exchange but also built a collection that became one of Samuel Hudson Chapman's major cataloguing triumphs, sold in June 1916. The Charles Gregory catalogue is rated A by Adams and is occasionally seen with 15 photographic plates, the largest such offering in any S.H. Chapman sale. Charles Gregory had two struck in gold, 80 in silver, and 250 in bronze, then gave the dies to the American Numismatic Society, saying it was his desire to "to offer a small numismatic tribute to help perpetuate the memory of the noble building that had just been completed." Specimens are rarely seen today. One was included in the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, a toned gem that brought $1955 in 2005 before interest in So-Called dollars matured. This example is more sedately and evenly toned in slate blue, nearly mattelike as struck, showing some light handling and hairlines but nothing significant or severe. This is one of just two medals I know of (the other a more common piece struck in 1922) to depict the New York Stock Exchange.
