    Silver Bailly 1873 Trade Dollar
    Gem Proof, Judd-1281

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1281, Pollock-1423, R.4, PR65 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. This deeply patinated Gem displays iridescent electric-blue, jade-green, pumpkin-gold, and ruby-red shades when rotated beneath a light. The portrait and borders are well struck but the defiant eagle shows selected softness. Certified in a former generation holder.
