Fake Trade Dollar

Did you know that PCGS couldn't determine if this coin is a fake or not?

I'm not familiar with the "We don't know" holder, and it appears to be invisible, too.

  • Umm. Should this not be posted in the coin forum?

  • Is this really true that there is a Fake trade Dollar?

    Yes, but this is a real one:

    Thanks for making my mistaken post relevant.

    That's one rare trade dollar, probably rarer than the 1884 but not quite as rare as the 1885, and about one ten thousandth the price. Maybe 5-10 known?

    Spurious Issue would be a great character name for a book. Hum....I call copyright!

    No genuine $3s issued for the bank, only $1, $2 and $5. My spurious $3 was indicated as an R5 (10 to 25 known) by Wait in 1976.
