    1874-CC Trade Dollar, MS65
    Tied for the Finest at NGC

    1874-CC T$1 MS65 NGC. A seldom-seen Trade dollar in mint condition as most of the 1.3 million struck were shipped to the Orient. Bowers states that in the mid-1970s a hoard of about 15 pieces was located in the Far East by World Wide Coin Investments. In fact, a large quantity of Uncirculated Trade dollars were found by Warren Tucker, partner in World Wide at the time, who paid approximately $200 per coin. Virtually all dates and mintmarks were represented in this hoard except the 1878-CC. These pieces were quickly dispersed among U.S. collectors. This is a lovely, bright example that is fully struck in all areas. Apparently the full strike was achieved by setting the striking pressure too high as both sides show extensive peripheral die cracks. Flashy mint luster rolls around each side of this lovely Gem. Census: 4 in 65, 0 finer (11/18).
