1873 TRADE T$1, TRADE MS65
FIRST YEAR OF ISSUE. JUST 6 GRADED HIGHER AT PCGS.
In 1873, miners in Virginia City found what was later termed the “Big Bonanza” silver deposit, part of the Comstock Lode. This bonanza, a word borrowed from Spanish meaning rich lode, held $60 million or the equivalent to a billion dollars in today’s currency. Could this 1873 silver trade dollar have been minted from silver found at the Big Bonanza?
