    Attractive Cameo Proof 1878 Trade Dollar

    1878 T$1 PR64 Cameo PCGS. First of the proof-only years from Philadelphia, only 900 pieces were struck in 1878. This piece is deeply reflective in the fields with desirable frost over the devices. The Cameo proofs certified are usually just fifteen percent or less of the number graded, and usually sell for a modest premium. A halo of antique-golden toning decorates the border areas of each side lending a frame for the frosted devices. Well struck throughout, a few scattered hairlines serve to limit the grade. Identifiable by a curling lint mark which extends left from the lowest olive leaf on the reverse. Population: 10 in 64, 7 finer (12/05).
    From The Andy Geosits Collection of Trade Dollars.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 27YP, PCGS# 87058)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
