    1873 Trade Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1300, PR64+
    Only Six Examples Traced

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1300, Pollock-1442, High R.7, PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Liberty is seated left on the obverse with her left hand resting on a globe and her right hand holding a liberty pole. Bales of cotton are present at Liberty's feet, and a plow and shafts of wheat are behind. A ribbon inscribed LIBERTY crosses the globe, thirteen stars are around the periphery, and the date 1873 is at the bottom. An eagle that is similar to that seen on the Amazonian patterns dominates the reverse. Perched on a rock, the eagle clutches a bundle of arrows in its right talon while its left supports a shield draped over which is a ribbon inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. The inscription 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE is below the rock, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the top, and the denomination TRADE DOLLAR is at the bottom. The eagle's beak holds the end of a ribbon inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Philadelphia coin dealer John W. Haseltine reported in March 1876 that seven examples were struck in silver. USPatterns.com has traced six of those coins, including this one. Dusky silver surfaces exhibit areas of golden color and blushes of deeper steel patina around the borders. The fields remain flashy and reflective.
