Superb Gem+ Proof 1882 Trade $1 1882 Trade $1. Proof-66+ NGC. This pale peach-gray specimen puts on quite a colorful display in a bold light source, revealing a broad display of lively peach, fiery orange, and rich crimson iridescence that is deepest at the rims. The needle-sharp devices invite the viewer to linger awhile and enjoy all the fine points of this popularly collected William Barber design.
Issued largely for American competition in the Orient Trade and in South America, by 1878 only two mints produced any coins for commercial use, and the Mother Mint in Philadelphia produced only Proofs. In 1879, branch mint coinage was discontinued altogether, and only Proofs issued forth from Philadelphia through the regularly regarded end of the series in 1883. The present Proof-only Gem is both attractive to the eye and choice from rim to rim, and we expect plenty of bidding activity at hammer time for this beautiful trade dollar.
