    1872 Longacre-Designed Commercial Dollar
    Judd-1215, PR64, Struck in Silver

    1872 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1215, Pollock-1356, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. CAC. The obverse has Longacre's design as used previously on the Standard Silver series in bold, medallic relief. The reverse has the Commercial dollar design, first executed in the previous year and weighing 420 grains, thus the predecessor to the adopted Trade dollar. Struck in silver with a plain edge. A beautifully toned survivor of the type, rich antique-copper toning envelops both sides. The obverse reveals salmon-pink undertones with a ring of electric-blue tinting around the margins. This is a historically significant pattern, and the present representative is sharply impressed with no outwardly distracting blemishes.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2003), lot 9931.
