    Superb Quality 1878-S Trade Dollar

    1878-S MS 66 PCGS. A popular date as 1878 was the final year for business strike Trade dollars, and it is also one of the more available issues in the series. This is a splendid type coin that derives much of its eye appeal from the bright mint luster that rolls across the surfaces. The striking details are fully articulated in all areas, and there are no mentionable abrasions on either side. The interior portions of the coin are brilliant with a mild accent of golden-russet patina around the peripheries. Population: 7 in 66, only 1 finer (5/95).
