Lot Description
1874 T$1 MS64 NGC. CAC. Surprisingly challenging for a coin with a mintage approaching a million pieces. A large percentage of the 1874 Trade dollar production was shipped to China (David Bowers, 2006). This splendid near-Gem piece sports tremendous mint luster that shines forcefully through the light gray and golden toning that covers each side. Sharply struck except for the typical softness in Liberty's hair and the centrils of the two upper left stars. A few unobtrusive marks preclude Gem status. Census: 24 in 64, 6 finer (6/09).
