Pleasing 1873 Trade Dollar Pattern
Judd-1293, PR65

1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1293, Pollock-1435, R.4, PR65 NGC.
Design.
The central figure of the obverse die is a seated Liberty facing left. Liberty holds a pole with Liberty cap, and is surrounded by a globe, cotton bales, a plow, and a sheaf of wheat. There is an arc of 13 stars at the border, with the date below. The reverse features an eagle standing on a rock, clutching three arrows and supporting a shield with his left talon. A ribbon across the shield carries the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. A banner in the eagle's beak is inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM. Below the eagle are the specifications 420 GRAINS and 900 FINE. The peripheral inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TRADE DOLLAR. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
The present coin is a particularly attractive example of this popular issue, one that is considerably more available than most pattern issues.
