Columbian Expo So-Called Dollar Help Needed

cmerlo1cmerlo1 Posts: 7,891 ✭✭✭✭✭

I picked this up at a local B&M yesterday. After spending some time looking it up in very old copy of Hibler/Kappen, I was unable to find it. It is made of aluminum and appears to have the obverse of HK-236, but I see no listing of a Horticultural Building/globe reverse. Can someone please tell me what the number is for this? Thanks in advance!

    It is a type not listed in the original H&K and not added in the updated edition (as were many new listings even when they shared a listed die). It is a known piece, scarce but not rare - I've handled three or four over the years. It is listed in the Raymond list of unlisted World's Columbian Exposition So-Called $ as #129.

    Can you have a list of unlisted coins?

    It looks like it shares the Horticultural building die with Eglit-32 which was discussed here as also being unlisted in HK:

    Of course, when the list is of items unlisted in another list ;)

    You can have a list of previously unlisted items... Which, by listing, became listed, though likely not in the resource list that is widely consulted. The foregoing is called circular logic... since it brought one back to where they were, while only marginally more informed. ;) Cheers, RickO

    Thanks, @tokenpro !

    These pieces will be listed in Jeff Shevlin and Bill Hyder's new SCD book .... hopefully coming in 2023...
