    1879 Trade Dollar, PR67 Cameo
    Proof-Only Issue

    1879 T$1 PR67★ Cameo NGC. The Trade dollar had fallen out of favor by 1879, and the denomination was produced only in proof format that year. Although the denomination continued to be struck in proof every year until 1883, no more business strike examples were ever produced. Perhaps to compensate, proof mintages were somewhat inflated during this period, and the 1879 issue claims a total of 1,541 pieces.

    The present coin is a spectacular Superb Gem proof, displaying profound cameo contrast between the deeply mirrored fields and the sharply detailed, frosty devices. The surfaces are largely brilliant, save for a hint of gold toning. Struck with the "first reverse" with a slight chip on the top of the 8. The left edge of the 7 appears to the right of the center of E in IN GOD WE TRUST, as described by Bowers (1993). Census: 20 in 67 Cameo (4 in 67 ), 6 finer (10/19).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27YR, PCGS# 87059)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
