Description & Analysis

From 1879 to 1885, only proof Trade Dollar strikings were made by the mint in Philadelphia, as the various mints were instead making large quantities of Morgan dollars. The proof Trade dollars were not exported as were the earlier business strikes, and many subsequently were mishandled or lost. Yet, specimens are available through the PR64 level, though they are difficult to acquire in better condition.
