Received my second Trade Dollar Today

Iowa Silver Baron Bammer


Worn, but worth it!

Received my second trade dollar today. It's a 1875-S, graded by NGC as XF40. I can live with the lower grades, especially for the older coins like Trade Dollars. I'd love to put together a set MS60 or better, but I can't afford anywhere from 4 to 6 figures for them. But this 1875-S is OK with me. Yes, it's worn, and yes, it has a couple nicks in it. But Miss Liberty still has a touch of luster, the date is nice and clear, as is the mint mark. The coin seems to have been struck nicely, I can see nice lines in the stars.

When I was younger, I would have scoffed at collecting the lower grades. But now (maybe I'm a little wiser????), I'm happy that I am.

I'm going to get an image posted in the next day or 2.
