Description

1874-S Chopmarked Trade Dollar, MS64
Rarely Seen in Mint Condition

1874-S T$1 Chop Mark MS64 PCGS. Large S. Such coins present an interesting study case. A Chinese merchant handled this coin, gave it a chop on Liberty's abdomen to verify its silver content, and then what? It is interesting that the coin remained in mint condition after handling and chopping. Usually chopmarked dollars are found in VF-XF condition with the occasional AU. Rarely were they set aside almost immediately after chopping and preserved in Uncirculated grades. The surfaces on this dollar are mostly brilliant with light accents of golden-brown around the devices. The strike is sharp, although not quite complete, and the all-important mint luster is frosted and uninterrupted except for a few small abrasions scattered over both sides. (PCGS# 87036)
