    So, in hand this looks like a circulated proof. Fields are flashy under the toning. But I could not find any proofs with reverse die cracks like mine. So I dig a little deeper and find that this is a minor variety (Obverse I, Reverse II). Those can come in PL. So I figure that's what I've got but mine is so circulated it won't get a PL designation. Two Questions:
    1. How much more rare is the 1876 Obv 1, Rev 2? Any idea on value?
    2. Would it straight grade with the few edge dings? I can't see any evidence of cleaning.

    The Obv1/ Rev 2 version is typical in value. The Obv2/Rev2 is the extremely rare one.

    Thanks! And I just saw the "How to Spot Fake Trade Dollars" thread as well that had that info.

    In answer to your questions - I'm not familiar with the varieties on this date. However, I see absolutely nothing on this coin that would lead me to think it had problems, and I see absolutely nothing on this coin that leads me to think it's fake.

    Here is mine, NGC MS-63PL, for comparison:

    Not a rare variety . Probably a straight xf 40. I don’t see the rims stopping it no problem on its authenticity. Nice eye appeal though

    76 P PL is fairly common, I believe. The I/II variety is scarce but doesn't command a premium. I think that one's a nice 45. That's a good image of the edge detail, CBD would you post that on the fake trade dollar thread as an example of genuine edge reeding? Thanks.

    Here's mine, also a I/II
    [​IMG][​IMG]I believe it has the same die crack on the rev under TRADE DOLLAR as the coin in the OP
