    Half-Hound Found: 1872 Trade Dollar *** UPDATE ***

    November 10, 2010
    (U.S. Marine Corps Birthday)

    Update on Trade Dollar Pattern Coin: It is counterfeit.

    I spoke with a buyer from a reputable coin dealer who within seconds of seeing an online .jpg image of the coin made her decision. She said the coin probably is silver, and could have been made yesterday or 100 years ago. The conversation was OVER!

    The coin is still an interesting piece to me, if to no one else. Thanks everyone for sharing my story.

    I don’t have much to say here – and I wouldn’t blame anyone for not believing it!

    I called a bank close to my bus/train route home. I was told they had $100 in halves. When I got there I found out they had $170 worth. Of course I wanted them all. I had no cash – not a single dollar. I needed to withdraw funds from my savings account to buy the coins.

    I mentioned to the young teller (Jackie) that collecting coins is my hobby. She then told me she had two old coins, and asked me if I wanted them, too. She pulled these two dollar coins (see the photographs) from her drawer. I had to pay for them with four clad halves that she had just given me.

    The oldest silver dollar is an 1872 Trade Dollar, I have never seen a coin like this before.

    The take:

    1872 Trade Dollar
    1924 S Peace Dollar
    1939 S Mercury Dime
    1951 S Franklin Half
    1964 D Kennedy Halves (2)
    1966 Kennedy Halves (3)
    1967 Kennedy Halves (2)

    And that’s the way it was.

    Congrats make sure you get that coin checked out, if that thing is genuine it could be the biggest find in CRHing history, a double eagle would be worth less than a genuine pattern.

    What an astonishing find!! This took my breath away!!!! If it's real it will probably be the best find on this site forever!!! So if it's real would you plan on selling it or keeping it? I know there's a chance the trade dollar is fake but did they ever make fakes of the peace dollar? I know they made fake morgans in china

    Re: Half-Hound Found: 1872 Trade Dollar

    Sorry Half Hound, there were only 10-12 of these made all issued in sets to the mint officials around the time they were deciding on what the Trade Dollar will look like. I believe all the known ones are already certified by PCGS and NGC. So, I'm almost 100% sure that yours is fake. Nice haul other than that though!

    WOW!!!!! Incredible find!!

    I wouldn't get too excited yet though, there are TONS of fake trade dollar coins floating around. Get it certified, and if it is real... CELEBRATE!

    Even if it is fake, that is still a rare find. And you also got a Peace Dollar and a bunch of silver halves... great score all around
