Randy, I bought an examples of the Washington $5 gold coin in proof & unc. shortly after they were released & always enjoy looking at them. I was really excited about the whole program of modern commemorative coins when the Statue of Liberty coins were released in 1986, the $5 gold coin impressed me. Over the years I've acquired about 15 different modern gold commemoratives. Sadly most coin collectors have lost interest in this series & most of the gold issues can be bought at melt price or less .
Not sure why there would be an argument about it, BOTH sets of initials are on the coin.
Yes, I know. I don't know why that may have been. Jealousy, perhaps? Back in those days, women were still given little respect.

An interesting (IMO) bit of trivia about the first powered flight. The length of it was 120 feet, which is shorter than the length of a B-52 (159 feet). That alone gives you an idea of how much flying advanced in just the first 50 years of powered flight (B-52's came into service in 1952).
