About this set: An interesting subset of trade dollar collecting. Trade dollars were minted with the purpose of exporting silver to China in mind. When received in trade, Chinese merchants would assay the coins to ensure proper silver content. They would then affix their mark, or chop, to the coins verifying the value for future acceptance. The majority of chopped trade dollars were eventually shipped to India in trade and melted for their silver.
