    1874-CC Trade Dollar, MS65
    High-Grade Carson City Example

    1874-CC T$1 MS65 PCGS. Breen-5786. Ex: Sierra Biker. Micro CC. Period after FINE. Trade dollars were collected by 19th century numismatists, but most settled for Philadelphia Mint proofs. There was little interest in mintmarked issues until after the 1893 publication of Augustus Heaton's Coinage of the United States Branch Mints. Business issues of the series were valued as bullion well into the 20th century. While examples of the 1874-CC were set aside in Mint State as a store of value, their indifferent storage ensured that Gems are rare. This lustrous high-grade Carson City type coin is mostly brilliant, but shows glimpses of cherry-red and navy-blue along the margins. Liberty's hair and coronet show incompleteness, but the overall strike is good. Marks are surprisingly few. Population: 4 in 65, 1 finer (6/21).
    From The Sierra Biker Collection. (Registry values: N7079)
