1874 Trade Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 64 Cameo. A nice white example. Well struck and scarce in cameo. Highly radiant and largely cameo-frosted with mirrored highlights on both sides. Razor-sharp strike, with substantial detail in the tiny stars, Liberty's hair and coronet (count the pearls lining the curve of the coronet!), as well as the other features of the intricate design. The adopted trade dollar design was from models by the mint's chief engraver, William Barber, who succeeded Longacre upon the latter's death in 1869. The trade dollar is Barber's most impressive design, and has long been a favorite with numismatists young and old. 700 Proofs struck. Pop 8; 3 finer; 2 in 65; 1 in 66. (PCGS # 87054) .

This is the year Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis received a U.S. patent for their blue jeans with copper rivets. The style has been popular worldwide ever since.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.
Ex Dr. Hesselgesser.

Realized $5,175
