Kudos to our host for the scarcity recognition.

Maybe collectors will appreciate the value in the series. Sorry if you are waiting for bargain prices long term.

    Not planning on selling but hopefully the chopped variety get a push also.

    I've been keeping an eye out for chopped Trade Dollars over the last month or so. The one in my Type set was cracked from a straight graded holder, but I wanted a chopped one for my Box of 20. Holdered ones that haven't been cleaned... in addition to getting chopped... are almost what I paid for my straight graded version around 8 months ago...

    The pricing update is only for Mint State Trade Dollars. Unfortunately for me, a Type Set collector, my one and only Trade dollar is a Proof. Hopefully those will get updated shortly.

    I only have one Trade dollar, chopmarked. I have thought about adding more, but since there are no shows or shops in my area, chances are slim - slim because I prefer to see them in hand. I know there are dealer sites and auctions... but I like to get up close and personal with big silver coins like this. Cheers, RickO

    A recent purchase.

    That's a really tough one. And it has all the diagnostic pickups of a genuine business strike I/I. Congrats!!!

    This date is TOUGH in eye appealing state.

    I am disappointed in the coin in hand. I will post a simple direct photo later.

  • conrad99conrad99 Posts: 345 ✭✭✭

    I'm sort of ambivalent about chops. I like them in theory but they have to be discreet in practice. So I was happy to land this one, even if at current prices.

    Hey! Mine's 24K gold, dude! Top that! Seriously though, what specifically do you find questionable about it?

    Your remark gave me a scare because—I suddenly realized—I hadn't looked up the cert before buying. Not a little ironic since the main reason I bought a certified example is because of the rampant counterfeiting of the type.

    Fortunately it checks out. And a benefit of the chop and TV images is that chops would be extremely difficult to replicate.

    I'm completely confused sorry. What is that coin? You have a TV? It's a gold plated Trade Dollar in a PCGS holder?...with a chop mark? Clear me up...what exactly is it?

    The price guides were not keeping up with market for a couple years. I was a major buyer of them over the period and would often be paying over straight-grade greysheet or PCGS price guide for cleaned and other problem Trade dollars. But was able to accumulate some that might be impossible with now so many buyers, eyeballs on then.

    Here is a nice rare example from the most common date.

    That’s a very rare coin in an even rarer grade. You must be quite the trade specialist.

    Trade Dollars are not going up in price...it is the dollar that is losing its purchasing power. The is the illusion that inflation presents itself.

    @Crypto I'd appreciate your thoughts on this 1876.

    edited to add: I'll try and take some pics of the coin in hand and post later.

    Ooooooohhhh!!!

    The obverse certainly looks PL - may be the reverse held it back??

    I believe you're right. The obverse is definitely PL, but not the reverse.

    Goldbully, are the rims as square as they appear in the pictures? It almost looks like a proof to my eyes, and I know these come very well struck.

    Well, if a dollar buys less gas, less food, less of everything, why wouldn't a dollar buy less coins? If the Federal Reserve pumps 6 trillion + in liquidity and no one has minted any more classic coins, what is the outcome?

    Anyway, it was mostly tongue in cheek and a different way to think about rising prices.

    I hope what you think is true...but most of us coin collectors are cheapskates! :# Think of how many coins cost the same or close now as they did when you were a kid. I could rattle of a bunch and I'm in my 60's.

    Sorry, I thought that by saying "24K" the joke was adequately over the top. Also, I followed it with "Seriously, though..."

    No, it's not gold. My camerawork and/or lighting could be better though. I'll try to get better photos at some point.

    Meanwhile you ignored my question: "Seriously though, what specifically do you find questionable about it?"

    It's probably the photo, but the whole coin just looks off. The detail on the eagle does not look right, plus, what is the strange grid imprint on Liberty's lap? If you post the TV, that would help.

    Thanks for your input.

    BTW, I didn’t mean to hijack this thread, so I will answer the OP.

    Yes, I’ve noticed that the higher grade Trade $1’s are appreciating nicely.

    That "strange grid" is the chop mark I referred to!

    And I may post the TV at some point but I know from experience that as soon as I do, everyone will pounce and say "oh yeah that's exactly what I saw!" This is why I was asking specifically what you were referring to. Anyway, onward and upward.
