Born Hiram Ulysses Grant and later swapped his first and middle name to Ulysses Hiram Grant when he applied for West Point. But a mistake was made and it was entered as Ulysses S. Grant. So even through the years and on the coin it was never corrected

I'm happy to see what is seemingly the most worn piece come out ahead - a vote for character!

The photography on that one was fantastic; you truly got the feel the coin was in high relief. That can happen, too when there is toning which was worn away on the mid-fields and high spots, which happened here. Lots of contrast.
