Lot Description
1875-S T$1 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Type One Obverse, Type One Reverse. The 1875-S Trade dollar enjoyed a series-record mintage of nearly 4.5 million pieces. Most of this huge production was used in trade with China, but some coins circulated on the West Coast. The 1875-S is not difficult to locate in lower Mint state grades, but Premium Gem examples are very rare. The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem, with vibrant mint luster and traces of gold and lavender patina. The obverse is sharply detailed, but some softness shows in the area of the eagle's right (facing) leg on the reverse. Housed in an old green label holder. Population: 8 in 66, 3 finer (11/11). From The Klamath Mountain Collection.
