    1873 Trade Dollar, Judd-1322, PR61 Cameo
    Ex: Gaston DiBello

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1322, Pollock-1465, R.4, PR61 Cameo NGC. Ex: Bass/ANA Museum Display. The obverse is similar to the adopted Trade dollar design, but with a longer base on the rock that extends to the right (facing) rim behind Liberty. The reverse shows a small eagle high in the field, with spread wings and holding a ribbon that is nearly a closed loop in its beak. 420 GRAINS, 900 FINE in a single arc in small letters is below, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TRADE DOLLAR around the periphery. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The Stack's DiBello sale cataloger in 1970 attributed the reverse design to Bailly, a.k.a. Joseph Alexis Bailly (1825-1883), a native of France who worked as an on-again, off-again assistant to Charles Barber, son of then-Chief Engraver William Barber. These Trade dollars were sold in six-piece sets for $30, according to USPatterns.com. The gold- and pinkish-toned surfaces of this piece are considerably reflective and show much eye appeal, despite the PR61 grade that undoubtedly stems from the rather thick field hairlines visible under a loupe, and a possible fingerprint in the right obverse field.
