Lot 1238

1873-S Trade Dollar. MS-60. Satiny white luster in the fields and quite appealing, with hints of toning starting to form. One small planchet flaw is located to the left of the date, not affecting the devices. Of the 703,000 struck, most entered circulation, many overseas in fact (where they were intended to circulate) to China where many were chop marked by local merchants. Nice for the grade, with minor hairlines and handling ticks that are not too distracting.
Estimated Value $500 - 600.
From the Benson collection and purchased from an unknown source in the 1940s.

Realized $483
