    1873 Trade Dollar Pattern in Copper
    Judd-1312, PR66 Red and Brown

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1312, Pollock-1455, Low R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A Trade dollar design struck in the year of its regular-issue debut with Liberty seated on the obverse wearing an Indian headdress, Liberty pole and cap in her right hand, left hand resting on a globe, and conjoined flags behind. The reverse has a small eagle in the upper half with the weight and fineness below and the statutory legends on the scrolls both above and below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    These Trade dollar patterns were sold as part of six-coin sets for $30. About 10 examples are known in copper. This high-end Gem is primarily Red, with just a few areas of slightly mellowed Brown color and accents of blue and violet. Probably the second finest Judd-1312 extant after the Eric Newman piece in PR66+ Red.
    Ex: Allison Park Collection (Stack's, 8/2004, as PR64 Red PCGS), lot 1313.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2A8T, PCGS# 71598)
