    1873 Bailly-Designed Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1283, PR66 Red and Brown Cameo

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1283, Pollock-1425, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown Cameo NGC. J.A. Bailly designed the obverse with a bust of Liberty facing left, her hair coiled at the back of her head. The date is below with 13 stars around. The reverse has an eagle with wings displayed, holding three arrows and supporting a shield. A ribbon inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST crosses the shield. 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE and TRADE DOLLAR are below the eagle, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Because it was not part of the six-piece Trade dollar sets that the Mint sold in 1873, Judd-1283 is substantially rarer than some other patterns of this series. It is believe that about 10 examples still exist. This is an amazing Gem Cameo proof with bright orange-red color. The devices on both sides are boldly defined.
    Ex: Lemus / Queller Family Collection, Part Two (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1835.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
