Elegant MS66 1873 Trade Dollar1873 T$1 MS66 NGC. Golden-brown peripheral patina frames the lightly toned centers of this shimmering Gem, most strongly as a "bar" across the top of the reverse. The eagle's right (facing) claw is not completely brought up, but the strike is otherwise exemplary. The reverse is gorgeously preserved, and close examination of the obverse reveals only virtually invisible slide marks above the date and in the lower left obverse field. The first year 1873 issue is very scarce in Mint State, seen far less often than the 1875-S and 1877-S issues. Premium Gems are exceptionally rare, especially with the eye appeal of the present example. Census: 3 in 66, 0 finer (6/10).
