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.

Collector of Victoria, Edward VII, George V and George VI Canadian; and most anything U.S. I am currently looking for early Lincolns, raw in XF or better.

    You have the imperial issue - without dot after "...EENS". Here is my "1904" issued in Republic period (after Revolution 1911 and before mass issue Shikai dollar in 1914) - with dot. Both types have the same value+-. I think this condition near $400-500.

    Nice piece. My guess would be a VF30 on that one
