Description:
Choice Proof 1873 Judd-1281
Trade Dollar Pattern
1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1281, Pollock-1423, R.4, PR64 NGC.
Design.
J.A. Bailly designed the obverse with a bust of Liberty facing left, her hair coiled at the back of her head. The date is below with 13 stars around. The reverse has an eagle with wings displayed, holding three arrows and supporting a shield. A ribbon inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST crosses the shield. 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE and TRADE DOLLAR are below the eagle, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
Another plentiful pattern variety with at least 100 examples known, and also part of the six-piece sets that the Mint sold in 1873. The six-piece sets were reportedly sold for $30, a substantial sum in those days. NGC Census: 8 in PR64, 11 finer. PCGS Population: 10 in PR64, 2 finer (12/08).

Physical Description.
This gorgeous Trade dollar pattern has a brilliant obverse with a frame of peripheral gold toning. The reverse is mostly champagne toned with deeper gold at the borders. Both sides have light cameo contrast, although insufficient for the Cameo designation.

Provenance.
Ex: House of Stuart, Ltd.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
(PCGS# 61566)
