1883 Proof Trade Dollar PCGS Proof 64

Introduction

The 1883 Proof Trade Dollar, featuring the Seated Liberty design, is a noteworthy piece from the latter part of the 19th century. This coin stands out because it is certified by PCGS in Proof-64 (PR-64) condition because of its superior craftsmanship and excellent preservation. Collectors particularly seek trade dollars for their historical context and intricate design.

This gorgeous coin has purple and blue gunmetal toning on both sides. A mere 979 examples were struck in Proof format this year, and few of them have been preserved with such stunning aesthetics as the present example.  It is far nicer in hand, under good light, than these images convey.

Obverse
The obverse of the 1883 Trade Dollar features the elegant Seated Liberty, a design by Christian Gobrecht. Lady Liberty is shown seated on a rock, holding a shield in one hand and an olive branch in the other, symbolizing peace and protection. In PR-64 condition, the coin displays sharp details and mirror-like surfaces with minimal imperfections, underscoring its high quality.

Reverse
The reverse side showcases a detailed eagle clutching arrows in its right talon and an olive branch in its left. The inscriptions "420 Grains, 900 Fine" below the eagle indicate the coin’s silver content and purity. The top of the coin is inscribed with "United States of America," and a banner with "E Pluribus Unum" is displayed above the eagle. The Proof-64 grade ensures that the coin retains its reflective surfaces and sharp details, making it a visually impressive piece.

Condition and Certification
