1873 Trade Dollar in Silver
1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1323, Pollock-1466, High R.7, PR64+
Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to that of the
adopted design, but with a longer base. The reverse shows a small
eagle with spread wings and a billowing scroll in its beak. Struck
in silver with a plain edge. About half a dozen examples of
Judd-1323 are known. They were issued in six-coin sets and sold to
collectors for $30 per set. David Akers described this piece when
he offered it as lot 1825 in Auction '82:
Judd-1323, PR64+ Cameo
"The coin has very light central golden toning that blends to darker violet brown and blue at the border. A few trivial hairlines are visible on close inspection, but the overall 'eye appeal' of this pattern is really quite outstanding. ... This is a very rare pattern, much rarer than the variety (J-1322) with reeded edge."
Nearly 40 years later, the color and eye appeal of this near-Gem remains just the same. Cameo contrast between the watery fields and frosty devices is uninhibited.
Ex: Auction '82 (Paramount, 8/1982), lot 1825.
