Choice $1200 Choice Original, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Dusty Gray-Gold, Eye Appeal at Grade, Chicago ANA New Purchase. 1878 brought the last year of Trade dollar production at the San Francisco mint. By April 1878 all Trade dollars had been struck and production shifted to the Morgan dollar as dictated by the Bland-Allison Act. There is speculation that quantities of the 1878-S dated Trade dollars were melted but no official records have been located. This mint state survivor offers perfectly natural surfaces and above average eye appeal. If searching for a mint state Trade dollar on a budget, then this example provide compelling value. Fields are lightly mirrored on both sides as struck from freshly polished dies. A dusty gray-gold film covers the surfaces and is mostly transparent to the underlying reflective luster. Fields are also unabraded. A superior example at the certified MS62 grade level and sure to please selective collectors. Housed in new NGC large font holder.
