    1873 Trade Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1277, PR62
    Frosty Portrait, Lightly Toned

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1277, Pollock-1419, Low R.7, PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features a bust of Liberty facing left, with 13 stars at the border and the date below. Liberty wears a beaded coronet inscribed LIBERTY. The reverse features the denomination TRADE DOLLAR and the specifications 420 GRAINS and 900 FINE, enclosed by an olive wreath. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above, with IN GOD WE TRUST on a scroll at the wreath base. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Light tan toning visits the peripheries of this crisply struck specimen. Although undesignated as Cameo, the portrait is frosty and contrasts with the glassy obverse field. We note a few delicate obverse hairlines, and a small spot between stars 3 and 4. Population: 1 in 62, 5 finer (9/20).
