1872 Trade Dollar Pattern (CF-T$1-1872-0002)


1872 Trade Dollar Pattern
COUNTERFEIT

This is a fake of the J1220/P1362 Trade Dollar Pattern (there are only about 6 genuine patterns of this type known). This also shares a number of die markers with CF-0001 of this year, but the dies used are distinctly different. This might be because this die set was made from the same original piece, or it could be a different die state.

A marker above the D in UNITED on the reverse is present as it is in CF-T$1-1872-0001, but the one below the D is absent.

There is a marker below the second gathering of laurels from the bottom on the left. This is also shared with CF-T$1-1872-0001.

Finally an incused scratch between OF and on the AM of AMERICA on the reverse is present. This is also shared with CF-T$1-1872-0001.
