would you put this trade dollar in your type set?
Hi again. I've been on a tear lately picking up coins for the 41 coin Basic US Coin Design Registry Set [see my liberty half, bust dime and bust quarter threads], which I've been working on for a little over a year now. I'm sure it's no surprise that the Trade Dollar has been a difficult type — so many of them look awful, especially in low MS-grades, and many straight-graded examples look like they should be in details holders.
This PCGS-graded one recently popped up from the good folks at David Kahn Rare Coins, and I pulled the trigger within about a minute of seeing it. It arrived yesterday and the photos are pretty true to the in-hand look. I know this is a series that requires deep expertise in, and I'm eager to learn from those with a more trained eye. I'll follow up with the grade on the slab later.
Thanks for taking a look!
