Breathtakingly Beautiful 1878 Superb Gem Proof Trade Dollar

Author: Stack's Bowers Galleries / Wednesday, June 05, 2013 / Categories: United States Coin of the Week
Our official auction of the Whitman Coin and Collectibles June Baltimore Expo is quickly approaching! The sale is now online for your bidding pleasure and catalogs are in the mail. This week our United States Coin of the Week features Lot 2256, a beautiful 1878 trade dollar graded Proof-67 Cameo in a PCGS Secure Holder and with a CAC sticker.

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.

Come view this impressive coin in person by appointment only in our New York Office next week. Call 800-566-2580 to schedule an appointment. This coin and the rest of the sale will be available for viewing on site at the Convention Center in Baltimore. We encourage you to join us there for a week of exciting numismatic action.
