    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.

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.
