1876 Trade Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 64. An America entered its centennial year, a wave of patriotism swept the nation. In response, the Philadelphia Mint coined more than the usual number of proof coins, taking extra care to produce especially well struck pieces of the current 1876 coinage. This is no exception, and the strike is second to none. Further, this one has carefully handled since it was struck, receiving only a couple of tiny signs of contact since it was struck, and precious few hairlines. In the color department, this one shines too, with resplendent blue and gold perfectly balanced on each side. A coin that no collector will ever want to part with.
Estimated Value $1,800 - 2,200.
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 $3,450
