1877 Trade Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 64. Bright and deep frost on the devices is well contrasted with the golden toning around the periphery. Excellent surfaces and well struck by the dies. One tiny speck has been removed from beneath the first 7 of the date. There remains some confusion over the original proof mintage for 1877, records suggest only 510 were struck, which would be the lowest proof mintage aside from the 1884 and 1885 Trade dollars. PCGS has graded 43 this high, with just 20 graded higher. An impressive example of this rare date, and a coin that would easily fit in a gem collection for its eye appeal and seductive toning.
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 $8,338
