Assembling a complete set of proof trade dollars is even more difficult than the mint state collection. The true stoppers are the ultra-rare 1884 and 1885. Of the ten 1884 specimens that were minted, PCGS had graded nine, with the highest grade being a magnificent PR67. There are only five 1885 proofs, with the most recent sale being the Eliasberg specimen which realized nearly $1 million when auctioned by Bowers and Merena.
