Descrizione dell'oggetto

[ Silver Dollars - Coins - United States of America ] 1885 Trade Dollar. Brilliant Proof, with strong claims to Choice. Of the Highest Rarity: one of only 5 known. The Debut Specimen, this being the first one ever offered for sale at auction, way back in 1913. At that time, it was famous collector H.O. Granberg's personal specimen. In 1950, famous old time dealer B. Max Mehl described this coin as ``Perfect brilliant Proof gem.'' The coin has brightly reflective, full deep mirror fields with blazing Proof flash visible everywhere. Liberty's figure on the front and the eagle on the reverse are lightly frosty. There is light russet iridescent toning on the obverse and reverse and some few hairlines. The coin has all the required attributes of a special Proof strike made at the Philadelphia Mint to exacting government standards. This coin is rarer than an 1804 Silver Dollar and rarer than even a Brasher Doubloon. In fact, it is so rare it is tied with the 1913 Liberty Nickel as being one of the rarest and most desirable of all great American numismatic classics.
