    Rare 1875-S/CC Trade Dollar Variant, MS63 PCGS

    1875-S/CC T$1 MS63 PCGS. FS-012.6. Type One Obverse / Type One Reverse. This is the less obvious but much scarcer S/CC overmintmark variant. Both overmintmarks have a die lump to the left of the S, and the better known variety shows strong evidence both C's. This variety shows very little of the host die's mintmark, but the coin matches all the diagnostics we noted on the Morris Silverman Second Variety S/CC (April, 2002): "...a distinctive die crack that begins far left of the word TRADE and terminates at the left side of the A. Another die crack, this time very fine, is seen in the field just to the right and up from the word FINE. Other die cracks are seen on the obverse, most notably from the lower left rim through the waves and continuing upward through star 1 and almost to star 2. Another crack begins far below star 2 and terminates in the field close to star 3. A fine crack runs from rim to rim touching the tips of the olive leaves in Liberty's outstretched hand." This coin also shows light roller marks like the Silverman/Jack Lee coin, but they are across the central figure of Liberty rather than on the head. A bit softly struck, as one would expect from this late die state, the surfaces are softly frosted and each side shows medium density golden-rose toning that deepens just a bit around the margins.
