    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1324, Pollock-1467, Low R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is virtually identical to the adopted design, but the reverse shows a small eagle with spread wings and billowing scroll in its beak. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. According to "This is one of the designs that was sold by the mint in 6 piece sets for $30." About 10 examples are known in copper with reeded edges. Others were struck in silver, aluminum, and white metal. This flashy Gem Brown proof enjoys delicate splashes of pastel patina in shades of orange, blue, green, and rose. There are a handful of trivial carbon spots on each side.
