    1873-CC Trade Dollar, AU55
    Partially Lustrous First-Year CC-Mint Coin

    1873-CC T$1 AU55 ANACS. Silver dollar production at the infant Carson City Mint increased substantially with the introduction of the Trade dollar in 1873. Rather than producing standard silver dollars on demand for local and regional silver depositors, Carson City now struck heavier Trade dollars for international export, fueled by new Congressional legislation. The first-year Carson City Trade dollar is collectible today but is scarce in high grade. This Choice AU example displays satiny, partially lustrous golden-toned surfaces and bold design elements. Barely any wear is evident.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 252X, PCGS# 7032)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
