    1874-S Trade Dollar, MS65+
    CAC Endorsed, The Sole Finest Known

    1874-S T$1 MS65+ PCGS. CAC. Large S, period after FINE. This is the sole finest 1874-S Trade dollar certified, even if only by the margin of the Plus designation. Only three other Gems are reported, one at PCGS and two at NGC (11/18). We have previously handled only one other MS65 coin, more than a decade ago in the Dallas Signature (Heritage, 12/2005), lot 986. This CAC-endorsed example is superior to that coin, and it is the only other Gem to be seen at public auction. The strike is sharp, and original frosty luster shimmers as it rolls across beautifully preserved surfaces. Most of each side has warm golden toning, although wisps of deeper amber and sea-green color appear in the margins. This is an exceptional 1874-S Trade dollar, destined for the finest collection of this popular series.(Registry values: N4719)
