Lot Description
1876-S T$1 MS65 NGC. Type One Obverse and Reverse, Large S. Mint records indicate a large mintage of 5.2 million Trade dollars was achieved at the San Francisco Mint in 1876. The majority of the coins were circulated in the China trade, although some pieces were used domestically. Today, most examples seen are in circulated or lower Mint State grades. Gem specimens are rare, with an estimated surviving population of 20-40 pieces. The present coin is a magnificent Gem, with sharp strike details throughout and extraordinary satiny luster. The brilliant silver centers of both sides yield to delightful shades of green and gold toning, with hints of blue on the obverse. The remarkable luster and toning create spectacular eye appeal. Census: 16 in 65, 3 finer (6/10). From The Dr. and Mrs. Claude Davis Collection.
