    1878 Trade Dollar, PR65
    Spectacular Multicolor Toning

    1878 T$1 PR65 NGC. By 1878, the Trade dollar was slated to be discontinued. Although the branch mints at San Francisco and Carson City continued to strike Trade dollars for export in 1878, the Philadelphia Mint produced only 900 proofs for collectors. This Gem example of the Philadelphia coin displays full detail and deeply reflective fields. The devices are frosted and appealing. While many proof Trade dollars have been dipped or otherwise cleaned, this attractive piece displays blatantly original multicolor toning that shows up when flashed out beneath a light. Hues of lilac, lavender, blue, green, and gold emerge in the fields, presenting magnificent eye appeal. Census: 35 in 65, 21 finer (4/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27YP, PCGS# 7058)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
