    Bailly 1873 Trade Dollar Pattern in Silver
    Judd-1281, PR62

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1281, Pollock-1423, R.4, PR62 NGC. The Bailly design, one of many in the series of 1873 Trade dollar patterns. The bust of Liberty faces left on the obverse, and her hair is coiled at the back of her head. The date 1873 is below; 13 stars ring the rim. On the reverse an eagle holds his wing open, clutching three arrows in one claw and supporting a shield with the other. A ribbon inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST transverses the shield. 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE and TRADE DOLLAR are below; UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM--the latter in minuscule font--are above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
    This piece offers silver-gold surfaces with sprinkles of blue-brown patina on the obverse and pretty pinkish-gold rim toning on the reverse. There is little contrast, but the strike is strong and the eye appeal is high, despite a few hairlines in the fields.
