Design.
The obverse is the regular design for the Seated Liberty dollar. The reverse has a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around.

Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Finally, Congress decided on the Trade dollar in 1873. NGC Census: 1 in PR62, 2 finer. PCGS Population: 2 in PR62, 1 finer (12/08).

Physical Description.
The deeply toned silver surfaces exhibit reflective fields beneath golden-brown, pale blue, and iridescent toning. Slight central weakness is noted, and the surfaces show the usual minor hairlines and tiny contact marks.

Ex: Bowers and Ruddy (11/1977), lot 3270.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
