1881 Trade Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 65. A superb gem of this date, only 960 were coined in proof, and most were mishandled. The strike is especially sharp on this, and the frost is piled high on the devices, and this may qualify as a "cameo" next time around. In the color department, this one is a winner, the edges show a rich tapestry of blue and gold towards the stars, while the fields are mostly a deep mirror gray. In their population report, PCGS notes just 38 have been graded this high, with 13 graded higher. One for the perfectionist, who must have the grade and the eye appeal.
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 $9,200
