1875-S/CC Trade Dollar PCGS XF45 Chop Mark SOLD
1875-S/CC Trade Dollar PCGS XF45 Chop Mark
This is a really interesting Trade Dollar. The most obvious thing about this Trade Dollar is that is has a ton of chop marks; at least two dozen different marks can be made out on the coin. Trade Dollars were silver dollars which were issued primarily for trade in Asia and have a slightly higher silver content than a standard silver dollar. Some Trade Dollars were counterstamped with Asian characters known as chop marks. Additionally, this is an interesting piece as it is the popular S/CC overmintmark variety. This chop marked 1875-S/CC Trade Dollar has been graded XF45 by PCGS. Despite all of the chop marks, which nearly obliterate the design of the coin, portions of the design remain and retain nice details. There is also some original mint luster remaining on the piece. The remnants of the CC mintmark are difficult to make out in my photos, but are clear in hand and match the Red Book photo of the variety well. Overall, this is a very cool Trade Dollar and a neat variety.
