    (1876) Trade Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1475b, PR65+ Red

    (1876) T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1475b, Pollock-1628, High R.7, PR65+ Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to the regular design, but the drapery is fuller in appearance, among other differences. The reverse is likewise similar, although the eagle has larger features than the regular-issue design and leans more distinctly to the viewer's left. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    It was once believed that these were struck in 1873 as proposed designs for the soon-to-be-issued Trade dollar (formerly cataloged as Judd-1321). However, it is now thought that the dies were produced by Anthony C. Paquet in 1876 as part of a proposed redesign of the Trade dollar. According to Saul Teichman, six examples are known. This Red Gem exhibits remarkable copper-orange color with nothing more than minor carbon spots scattered over each side. Partially contrasted.
