Description & Analysis

The trade dollar was the only United States coin struck solely as proofs in 1882, but for several other denominations only token numbers of pieces were being struck for circulation. Three-cent pieces, quarter dollars and half dollars were coined in numbers just sufficient to discourage speculation in the proofs, but there was no circulation issue of trade dollars after 1878.

After fairly large mintages in February and March, proof trade dollars were coined monthly for the remainder of the year in numbers as small as 20 pieces! Some of this represents speculative purchases by dealers for store stock, but there was no quick "flipping" of these low mintage coins as has become common with some modern U. S. Mint issues.

The number of 1882 trade dollars certified is reflective of the relatively high mintage. Gems are available for a price, as are Cameo pieces. This appears to be the only date in the series for which a relatively high number of coins have been certified as Ultra Cameo, making 1882 a good candidate for the most advanced of type collectors.

The only varieties noted are quite trivial and likely reflective Walter Breen's occasional exaggeration of irregularities common to most coin types of the period.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
