1874 Trade Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 65. Smoky gray toning with lighter areas at the center of the obverse and reverse, and hints of gold and blue in the fields. As to the quality, this one is head and shoulders above most, the fields remain quite fresh, and show none of the heavy hairlines which often demolish the grade on these. While the toning on this one may not be as colorful as often seen on the Benson coins, this one is nevertheless quite desirable for its mint fresh surfaces and seductive silver appeal. PCGS notes only 11 graded this high, with just 2 graded higher (both PR-66), making this one of the best around for the date.
Estimated Value $5,500 - 6,500.
From the Benson collection and purchased from James G. Macallister on June 8, 1944 as part of a Proof Trade dollar set for $120.00.

Realized $7,475
