    1873 Bailly-Designed Trade Dollar, PR45
    Judd-1281, Probable Pocket Piece

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1281, Pollock-1423, R.4, PR45 NGC. The obverse, designed by J. A. Bailly, features a coiled hair bust of Liberty facing left. The reverse mimics the 'Amazonian' pattern silver dollar save for a reduction in the size of the eagle and the addition of the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM above and the weight and fineness below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Most likely this piece was never in actual circulation, but it has the appearance of a pocket piece that was carried for a few years. Both sides are mostly brilliant with just a tinge of reddish patina.
    From The Thompson Collection of US Patterns.
