From a Proof only mintage of 900 pieces comes this simply exquisite, Superb Gem trade dollar. Seldom do large size coins display the silky smooth, nearly pristine surfaces that characterize both sides of this example. Richly frosted devices provide a profound cameo appearance. The piece is fully struck throughout with brilliant centers and handsome blue to copper-apricot iridescence splashed about the peripheries. Ranking among the finest known for both the issue and the type, this incredible specimen would be a highlight in any collection.
