"Breen" Question on a * 1874 CC Trade Dollar* AU53 CAC "The Col. Green/Eric P. Newman" Collection

Coins | Kepi

My newly acquired Trade Dollar has a "Breen" number #5786 and while I have sent for a book on the subject from the ANA Library, I was hoping someone could tell me what this number means. I would greatly appreciate it! Also, if you go to my Collection, under my user name Kepi, you can view more photo's of this gorgeous coin! Thanks for your help!

Hey Everyone, I received Walter Breens Encyclopedia in the mail today from the ANA and was able to answer my own Blog question...Thanks to those of you who did help me out... : ) I found out that #5786 means my Trade Dollar has a "Micro" CC mint mark and is considered Rare. The CC measures 0.74 mm., as on the 1873-4 Half Dollars.

Glad it worked out for you. Now you need to figure out which type reverse and obverse it has. The fun never end in numismatics!!

That's another great win Kepi. I don't know how you sneak in there and get them. As far as the Breen number goes, I think checking out the book from the ANA was the way to go. Unless someone has his book in front of the, I doubt anyone would remember what that particlular number stands for. Again, congratulations on this win. I couldn't help but notice its impressive pedigree! Well done.

Breen assigned every coin a number. I do not have my copy handy, but this may just be the normal dies for the date/MM.
