    1875 Trade Dollar, MS64+
    Original, Lightly Toned Surfaces
    Lowest P-Mint Series Issue

    1875 T$1 Type Two Reverse MS64+ PCGS. CAC. This remarkable near-Gem Trade dollar exhibits thick mint frost, fully evident beneath variegated shades of pale blue, gray, and golden patina. As often seen on this issue, the strike is somewhat incomplete over the highest portions of the design. A few small abrasions are scattered over each side but much eye appeal is present. The CAC approval testifies to the appealing surfaces.

    Variety: The usual Type Two reverse without a berry under the claw (on the Type One reverse, a berry resides between the fletchings of the two arrows). A die crack encircles the entire reverse, bridging the fields and joining the letter tops.

    Population Data (4/15): PCGS records 20 examples in MS64 (two in MS64+) and four finer. The NGC census count 17 pieces in MS64 and 11 higher.

    Heritage Commentary: The Philadelphia Mint produced its smallest delivery of business strike Trade dollars in 1875, and already the vast majority of Trade dollars were being coined at the western mints. 1875 Philadelphia Trade dollars are thus scarce and become rare at the Choice Uncirculated level. (NGC ID# 2534, Variety PCGS# 40107, Base PCGS# 7037)
