    I have bought thru trades $3225 from this dealer, who is at most local coin shows. I plan to e-mail him next month to ask him if he has any trade $s. Then, at the show, convince him that he over rated the coin, and put the $425 toward another trade $. Otherwise, put it toward other coins that I need.

    Let me toss in an OMM, the well known 1875 S/CC, AU58 from the retired "Crypto" set. FS-501

What stands out to me on this coin is the wing on the reverse . It does not look like damage . Pretty coin
    Coin is authentic.

    Interesting coin, cooper12; definitely genuine. It looks like some sort of recutting of the right wing edge, but I don't know. You might consider posting this coin on the CU US Coins forum; Joe Kirchgesser (keoj) is probably the most knowledgeable TD expert right now and he posts over there; also a handful of other TD experts might be able to add some commentary. Your photos are really high quality! Your coin has a great look.

    Here is a challenging 1877-S variety, with doubling on the upper reverse:

    It's FS801, very hard to find in any condition. doubling on STATES OF AM , ribbon, and EPU. This came from Rick Irons, attributed. I thought I had found one in AU58 about a year ago, but I was fooled by light reflections. Wound up with a nice AU58 common 77-S though.

    I am looking for a circulated Trade Dollar, any year, with at least one chop mark (the more the better). If you have one you would like to sell please PM me. I hope this request is OK in this thread.

    Only? I think every dollar starting with the Peace dollar to present would fit into the unwanted, unhonored catagory.

    I just bought my first CC Trade Dollar a circulated 1874 with one chop mark.
    Photos are horrible but they have return privy if its not what I think.
    Said they tested it with a sigma and weighed it so thats a good sign.

    Worn coin with chop marks means it did the job it was supposed to do! I guess all worn coins have done the job they were intended to do, but trade dollars seem special.

    It has a rim hit that does not go into the reeding but I think it will details . coin has a proof look to it almost . Does not have hairlines or polished but has a interesting color to it.
    anyways it still looks nice in hand and not as dark as my photos and it’s a 1873 Philly so I’m thrilled to have it.

    Nice coin, cooper12, and some interesting research on the variety. 73-P's are not that easy to find and overshadowed by the CC's. Here is my AU58 example:
