    1873 Trade Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1294, PR63

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1294, Pollock-1436, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Judd Dies 5-C. Liberty is seated on a globe, facing left. A plow behind her has short handles. She holds a pole with Phrygian cap atop and stares out into the sea. The reverse offers 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.

    These pieces were sold by the Mint in sets in silver as well as copper and aluminum. Likely a half-dozen or so examples exist today of this silver striking. Deep rose patina evenly covers both sides of this pattern. There are few mentionable distractions, although the strike is soft in the central reverse, on the eagle's breast. Population: 1 in 63, 1 finer (9/20).
