    1875 Trade Dollar, Iridescent PR66
    Excellent Eye Appeal

    1875 T$1 PR66 PCGS. Type Two Reverse. A recent study from our archives of 177 proof 1875 Trade dollars reveals that the Type One Reverse is not nearly as scarce as previously thought among the proofs. In the sampling, the 1875 I/II outnumbers the 1875 I/I by a margin of just 56% to 44%. This Premium Gem Type Two Reverse proof (no berry beneath claw) is a visually impressive example, toned in colorful iridescent hues over smooth and glassy fields. Shades of lilac and orange-gold toning predominate.

    A glass reveals only minor imperfections in either the strike or the surfaces. The top of Liberty's head and the right-hand stars lack the crispness of strike seen elsewhere on the coin, but only trivially so. A few delicate lines are effectively masked by the attractive patina. A moderate proof mintage of 700 pieces (Bowers suggests 900 proofs is more likely) includes only a half-dozen pieces at the PR66 level at PCGS, plus two finer examples. Population: 6 in 66 (1 in 66+), 2 finer (3/17).
