A spectacular 1877 trade dollar graded MS-61 PL by NGC. This is the first and only proof like trade dollar we have ever offered in all of our years in the coin business. It carries excellent details for the grade with very strong proof like surfaces on both the obverse and reverse. We thought this coin would grade MS-62 PL but NGC decided to be conservative with this beauty.
For this year this is the only coin graded MS-61 PL by NGC. The population report shows that they have only graded a total of eight coins with their PL designation in all grades for this date. What makes this coin even more interesting is that in all of NGC's grading history they are showing that there have been a total of only 31 coins graded PL in all grades, for all dates, from all Mints. A very unique piece that is seldom available on the market.
