1873-S Trade Dollar. PCGS graded MS-63. Remarkably clean surfaces and loaded with luster; all overlaid with pleasing antique toning on both sides. Silver Dollars had never been popular with Easterners, who had stubbornly refused to carry the bulky coins around with them in their pockets and change purses. Yet, the Mint kept right on striking them. That is, they were made annually until 1873, when Congress passed the Act of 1873 demonetizing Silver Dollars (at the time, Seated Dollars). Instead, a new Trade Dollar was introduced. The Trade Dollar, one of the most attractive coin designs of the 19th century, was meant to circulate in the Far East, specifically in the China trade, which then was burgeoning. This is a wonderful first-year strike for the collector to imagine appearing in his set of coins! (PCGS # 7033) .
Estimated Value $3,300 - 3,500.

Realized $2,760
