Description

Barber-Designed 1873 Trade Dollar Pattern
Judd-1293, Proof

1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1293, Pollock-1435, R.4--Obverse Scratched--NGC Details. Proof. The design is similar to the issued Trade dollar, but Liberty's left hand rests on a globe, right hand holds a staff, and plow handles are behind the globe. On the reverse, the banner bearing E PLURIBUS UNUM is clutched by the eagle's beak, which also clutches a Federal shield in place of the usual olive branch. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The problem of die opposition is apparent on this coin with higher details in the center of both obverse and reverse. As a result, there is not enough metal to fill the designs and the coin ends up weakly struck in these areas. Of greater import, however, are several light scratches on the right side of the obverse. The fields otherwise are deeply mirrored and there is noticeable mint frost on the devices. Most of each side is brilliant but deep color is noted over the rims on both obverse and reverse. (NGC ID# 2A8G, PCGS# 61578)
