An alert E-Sylum reader forwarded this story about an interesting engraved 1883 silver dollar on display in Jamestown, ND. I was unable to locate the full article but did find this image of the piece. Apparently there were nine engraved dollars presented to the mayor and council members, and this is the only one known today. -Editor
This coin owned by Dr. Manuel Harris of Jamestown was purchased in Orlando, Fla. The coin was once owned by Anton Klaus, considered to be the father of Jamestown. It will be on display at Wells Fargo Bank beginning Wednesday and remain on display through the 125th Anniversary Celebration.
