    Judd-1317, Struck in Copper

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1317, Pollock-1460, Low R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Bailly's Liberty design is seated facing left on the obverse with cotton bales, tobacco plants, and wheat sheaves around. Her right (facing) hand supports a globe inscribed with LIBERTY, while her left holds high a pileus cap. A small eagle atop a shield dominates the reverse with the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM above and 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE and TRADE DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    The Mint hired Philadelphia sculptor Joseph Alexis Bailly to produce designs for the Trade dollar during the early 1870s. This is one of his creations. About 10 examples are known in copper with a reeded edge. This Premium Gem exhibits glossy brown surfaces that reveal rich violet, magenta, and peach-orange colors on the obverse. Similar shades grace the reverse, but they are considerably lighter. Void of pedigree markers.
