    1873 'Bailly Head' Trade Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1282, PR63

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1282, Pollock-1424, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Judd Dies 2-B. The scowling, thick Liberty head design on the obverse is known as the "Bailly Head," facing left with date below. The reverse has William Barber's Standing Eagle design, holding a shield, tiny E PLURIBUS UNUM above the eagle, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TRADE DOLLAR around the rim, 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE just below the eagle. Struck in silver with a plain edge.

    Pattern silver dollars actually struck in silver have a particular following among pattern collectors, and the same is true of Trade dollar collectors. estimates that half a dozen survive of the Judd-1282 variety. This example displays few mentionable distractions amid mottled brownish patina.
