FOB LOOPED SO CALLED DOLLARS FROM THE 1909 ALASKA YUKON PACIFIC EXPOSITION EXPOSITION. I grew up north of Seattle and attended the University of Washington, so I guess these are of special interest to me. The fair was held on the present day University of Washington campus. Other varieties exist that are not shown here. Most are quite rare. Looped pieces were excluded from Hibler and Kappen's so called dollar book, but these are hard too overlook. I own one unfobbed piece(Washington State Building)that was never looped and was probably struck using only an upper die, and I have been told that there is a Seward piece that also exists without loops, and no evidence of removal. Recently in 2015 there was an HK357 that sold on ebay that had a reeded edge and thus must have been minted without a loop.
