    1875 Trade Dollar Pattern, PR62
    Rarely Offered Judd-1420

    1875 $1 Dollar, Judd-1420, Pollock-1563, High R.7, PR62 PCGS. A Trade dollar pattern with Liberty at the seashore, a steam warship in the distance, and the wind strangely blowing from two directions. The reverse is the regular issue No Motto silver dollar design. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The USPatterns.com website reports Adams and Woodin knew of six specimens, and "at least 5 different pieces are confirmed." The updated pedigrees of the known pieces are:

    1. H.P. Newlin (Haseltine, April 1883); Garrett Collection, Stack's (3/76), lot 655; Harry Bass Research Foundation.
    2. Eliasberg I (Bowers and Merena, 5/96), lot 283.
    3. Getty Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 5/77), lot 660; Randolph Rothschild Collection (Stack's, 10/03), lot 1105.
    4. Possibly Ex: Farouk; 1984 ANA (Kurt Krueger, 7/84), lot 660; Central States (Heritage, 4/2006), lot 1855; ANA (Stacks-Bowers, 8/2011), lot 7526; Scotsman (10/13); Pre Long Beach Sale (Goldberg Auctions, 6/2014), lot 1642. The present example.
    5. Boston Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 8/2010), lot 1404; Baltimore Auction (Stacks-Bowers, 3/2012), lot 4219.
    6. Illustrated History, (Abe Kosoff, 1962), lot 476. The Judd plate coin for editions 1-7. Possibly one of the above.


    Only one other piece has been certified by PCGS, a PR65. The present example is lightly hairlined, with attractive translucent golden centers that deepen to reddish-gold toning around the margins. Occasional areas of die rust on the reverse indicates use of a leftover reverse die from 1865 or before. This highly-popular issue is a rare opportunity for the advanced specialist. Population: 1 in 62, 1 finer (11/15).
