    Sparkling White and Lustrous 1873 Choice Mint State Trade Dollar

    1873 T$1 MS64 NGC. Full stars and device detail on Liberty and her eagle confirm a decent strike on this first year of issue. Bright white with a hint of gold near the rims. Abundant luster and clean surfaces make this coin a pleasant reminder of how nice a dollar coin can look as compared with those of more recent issue. Q. David Bowers and Mark Borckardt in their Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States A Complete Encyclopedia discussed how most of the Philadelphia and Carson City coins had muted luster in 1873, and curiously the 1873-S Trade dollars are usually seen with blazing luster. The present Philadelphia coin is a find for the specialist who appreciates eye appealing luster. Census: 21 in 64, 10 finer (12/05).
