A date that is a hundred years off and far, far too light; this piece is a curiosity.


The very first Trade Dollars were minted in 1873. This date is 76 years too soon!

The detail is very poor. Particularly on Liberty’s head.

Ironically there is graininess all over “GRAINS” on the reverse.

Finally it is in medal alignment. Put your thumb and forefinger at 6 and 12 o’clock respectively and spin the coin. Both sides will be “up.”
