    1873-CC Trade Dollar, MS62
    Seldom Encountered in Mint Condition

    1873-CC T$1 MS62 PCGS. The mintage of 124,500 pieces seems adequate for the 1873-CC Trade dollar, maybe a bit on the low side. But collectors are well aware how difficult this issue is in mint condition. The reason undoubtedly lies in how the coins were distributed. The first 2,580 dollars were released to local depositors on July 23; then most of the remaining production run was exported to China for their intended purpose as Trade dollars. This is an attractive example with bright mint luster and just the slightest gray patina over each side. The strike is generally strong, but not complete in all areas. There are several abrasions located above the eagle's head, but otherwise the surfaces show only minor marks. Population: 20 in 62, 17 finer (11/16).

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
