Judd-1317, Struck in Copper
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.
