    1875 Trade Dollar, MS66
    Usual Type Two Reverse

    1875 T$1 MS66 PCGS. Housed in a green-label PCGS holder. This impressive Premium Gem displays frosty silver luster with bold design definition and brilliant surfaces that are pristine and nearly flawless. A few minuscule marks in the fields prevent a higher grade. Certified in a green-label holder.

    Variety: Type One Obverse, Type Two Reverse. We examined 119 appearances of business strike 1875 Trade dollars in our Permanent Auction Archives and found that 105 of those offered have the Type Two reverse.

    Population Data (7/14): This important issue is encountered from time to time in lower Mint State grades. However, PCGS shows only the present example in MS66, and one finer MS68 piece. NGC shows two MS66 and one MS67.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1875 Trade dollar is an important low-mintage issue, as most Trade dollars were struck at the San Francisco Mint, which was closest to the intended Oriental trade. The mintage of 218,200 business strikes was the second lowest in the series behind the 1878-CC Trade dollar.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 5FBS, PCGS# 7037)

    Weight: 27.22 grams
