Type 1/1- MPD FS-301 top of 7 poking out of the denticals. Nice original con that is known with two different Rev mint mark size variants. NGC called it a 45 but PCGS is right with the 40 grade.
Type 1/1- Wide CC 1.2 MM and rare as such. Interesting case where a specfic naked eye reverse die was used in three different years 4 years apart (73,74 & 76). All are rare with the 73 & 74 being especially so. Really nice coin with multilayered skin that speaks to originality. Diagnostic for the year weak strike.
Type 1/1- Choice original AU with glowing luster under dusty skin. Most common of the CC Trades but rare this nice in the perfect economy collector grade.
Type 1/2- Most common of the 3 main 76cc's you will come across at an almost 75% rate, although the 76cc is a scarce date to start with it becomes conditionally rare in the choice AU and greater range. This coin is a total package of originality /luster pop / and preservation with a correct grade of 53. Most coins of this issue even in TPG's slabs are not working with their original skin. Perfect
Type 2/2- A nice example of this popular CC issue that is an understated rarity. While it gets over shadowed by the 78cc the Pops are almost the same.
Type 2/2-Completely under graded keydate. Detail of 50-53 w/ luster of 45-50. Traces of old proof like flash. One of the nicest Cir 78's I have seen outside of a few high end AU's. Perfect The allure of the 1878cc Trade dollar that helps it cross into mainstream collectors--- Made rare by decree: Secretary of the Treasury John Sherman, who disliked trade dollars intensely (even though the director of the Mint, Dr. Henry Linderman, believed they were an excellent, useful coin), mandated on February 22, 1878, that no trade dollars would be paid our for deposits of bullion made prior to the order for discontinuance when received at Carson City. When this order reached Carson City, this branch mint had already struck 97,000 pieces; 56,000 in January and 41,000 in February—the smallest business strike quantity of the denomination. Thus, a rarity was created. Melting: On July 19, 1878, 44,148 undistributed trade dollars went to the melting pot. Most must have been dated 1878-CC, many from the 41,000 delivered in February. This leaves a net mintage for distribution of only 52,852 coins. Although it is possible that some were dated 1877cc
