About this set: Trade dollars have a fascinating history: minted from silver mined in the old west, shipped by boat to the Orient for international trade, chopmarked Trade dollars bear physical evidence that they served their intended purpose. This collection was put together over the past decade or so and is one of the few --if not only-- complete collection of chopmarked Trade dollars in existance. It was a tremendous challenge and pleasure to put together.

I'm thinking of the stories each coin has since none of them became chop-marked by accident ;-)

Great set! I'm developing a passing interest in chopped Trades and you certainly are fanning my interest! Great set!
