Trade Dollars
1882 T$1 PF

Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint struck a total of 2,322 proof dollar coins in 1882. Of those, 1,100 were Morgans, 1,097 were Trade dollars, and the remaining 125 were gold dollars.

Like the Morgan dollar proofs of this date, the Trade dollar issues usually come with at least some cameo contrast. The Trade dollars have twelve times as many ultra cameo examples as the Morgans, however. Time has clearly taken its toll on this population, as examples often have issues which can hold them back from the gem grades.
