"Frowning Bust" Trade Dollar Pattern
1873 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1281, Pollock-1423, R.4

This is a delightful Trade dollar pattern with a frowning bust of Liberty facing left, her hair tied tightly behind her head. This obverse design has been attributed as the work of J.A. Bailly. On the reverse, the small eagle has one claw on the ground, the other supports the shield at the very top. The awkward placement of the legs may explain the agitated expression of the eagle. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
