    1880 Trade Dollar, PR67
    Registry Grade Example

    1880 T$1 PR67 PCGS. No Trade dollars were produced for circulation after 1878, but the Philadelphia Mint continued to strike proofs for collectors until 1884. When collectors and dealers became aware of the proof-only status of the denomination a popular speculation in the proofs sprang up. The increased demand resulted in a record mintage of 1,987 proof Trade dollars in 1880. Although the speculation peaked in March, and subsided after that, the Mint continued to strike proofs throughout the year. The majority of the mintage still survives and the issue is available in grades up to the PR65 level, but examples in PR67 are rare.

    This spectacular Superb Gem exhibits razor-sharp definition on all design elements and the virtually pristine surfaces include deeply mirrored fields throughout. Attractive shades of pale jade and cerulean-blue toning add to the outstanding eye appeal. Population: 6 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer (7/19).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27YS, PCGS# 7060)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
