Owner's Comments

2013-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: 5 Star Generals Marshall/Eisenhower { PCGS-3 } First Strike {Apr'2013) Mintage: 69,300 (proof) Strong use of contrast and flawlessly executed frosted devices make the general duo come to life, with powerful life-like dominating eyes from both figures. This design rivals the Dolly Madison Dollar for effective use of this medium. The reverse is simple with beautiful deeply mirrored fields. George Marshall was in command at the beginning of WWII and oversaw the rapid ramp-up in the armed services, and he was the early architect of Operation Overlord for the invasion of Normandy. Many thought that he would be in command of this effort, but Roosevelt chose Dwight Eisenhower for that honor, one of the experienced officers favored by Marshall. Some viewed Marshall staying in Washington as a demotion; but, he was promoted to General of the Army, the equivalent of Field Marshall. Later, Eisenhower would be also given this rank, just prior to the Battle of the Bulge. Marshall later gave his name to the plan to reconstruct Europe after the war, and Eisenhower went on to become president.
