1904 China Dollar Kiangnan Province
I bought this one raw and had PCGS grade it. There is some interesting history here. This 1904 dollar is the same specs as a Morgan, whereas a generation earlier the U.S. made trade dollars with different specs for trade with China.
Any opinions where this one fits on the VF scale? Chop marks devalue these ones, and also there is a huge price jump from from VF30 to VF35 ($160 to $1,000).
The grade is VF Detail with Chop Mark.
257A Fewer Spines
The toning is beautiful on this one. It has been in a tin for 60 or 70 years.
