    1873 Trade Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1327, PR66 Brown
    Four Pieces Known

    1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1327, Pollock-1472, High R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies for the adopted Trade dollar. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. These off-metal Trade dollars were produced explicitly for sale to collectors, but only four examples in copper are known. The only one we have handled to this point was a PR64 in January 2010, now housed in a Wyoming collection, which contains the three other examples of this rare pattern issue.

    Eye appeal for this Premium Gem proof is phenomenal, with rose and violet patina revealing accents of sky-blue and peach-orange over flashy medium brown surfaces. Glints of mint-red color remain. This would make a terrific addition to any advanced Trade dollar set.
    Ex: Robert Michael Prescott Collection (American Numismatic Rarities, 1/2006), lot 935.
