    1872 Commercial Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1219, PR65+

    1872 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1219, Pollock-1360, Low R.7, PR65+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the regular design for the Seated Liberty dollar. The reverse has a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. The wreath stems are tied by a bow and intertwined with a ribbon inscribed GOD OUR TRUST. Inside, COMMERCIAL and DOLLAR are separated by a cornucopia with 420 GRS / 900 FINE on two lines below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    These Commercial dollars were predecessor patterns to the Trade dollar ultimately introduced in 1873. They were designed to compete with the Mexican peso in trade with the East. More than a dozen silver examples are known, three of which are permanently impounded in institutional collections. Those in private hands are seldom offered.

    This Plus-designated Gem proof is gorgeously preserved, with somewhat dusky surfaces revealing flashy fields and elegant gold and violet patina when rotated.
