1875 Micro s Type I/II Trade Dollar

Coins-United States | Manole19

Hi to all. I have been searching for some time and need your opinions and help.
I have this coin in the pics. a 1875 Micro s Type I/II Trade Dollar.
I have look everywhere on the internet to find this coin, with no luck.
then I found some information about ir on NGC site. This is what it says.

¨Variety Diagnostics
The Type 2 reverse hub is combined with the Micro S mintmark, a very scarce combination.¨
this is the link if anyone wants to see it.
https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-varieties/trade-dollar-die-varieties/1875-micro-s-type-2-rev-t1-vp-003-5201/
To my surprice this page says that NGC only graded 1 of these coins in a AU.55..
So then does anyone have any more information about this coin?
How can I find out what its Price is, with only 1 graded by NGC.
I dont want to sell the coin,but I would like to know how much its worth.
also I will like to here what your grading opinions on this coin? 
Its authentic,to me it looks AU-58. Could be a XF-45 also. 
But I have seen some graded by PCGS in MS-61 & MS-62. That dont look this good.
Thanks for your help.

Just try not to get into grading. They will break your heart. It take many years and many many books to become a grader. They just don't look at an old coin and say oh this looks like a AU. There is a whole process they don't guess. Although sometimes you think they do. The worst thing to is getting into is grading your own coins. Well it looks like this or it could be that. I have seen coins that look a lot worse than mine and get a better grade so be careful.

After intense weeks of research from internet, Heritage Auction catalogues, ANACS Library and speaking with one of their experts ( on the phone), David Bowers book “Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States” & Walter Breens´s - Complete Encyclopedia of United States and Colonial Coins This is all the information I was able to acquire. Although I do not doubt there is more Information out there and problably more coins like this. David Bowers & Walter Breen, considered at the time when they wrote their books. A VERY RARE COIN Population: 1- AU DETAILS – ANACS EX-40 POLISHD, CORRODED- SCARTCHES 1- AU-55 - NGC 1- AU-55 – PCGS ( No photo and did not mention Breen 5795 ) 1- AU-58 - ANACS ( HERITAGE AUCTIONS 2003 ) 1- MS-63 – NGC ( Not sure if it is the Breen 5795 ) If you have any more Information, I would appreciate having it, for my personal knowledge & for my records. Thank You

Any comments on the Grade of this coin?

The best way to know what grade a coin rates is to have it graded. Although grading services may vary some from grading to grading, it will get you in the ballpark, so to speak.

I have done research . I have discovered that this is the Breem 5795 only 1 Grade by ANACS AU-58 I guess this mite be the second coin,for the moment. I have lots of books on coins and theres a whole lot of information on internet,by ANACS,PCGS,NGC and even Auction houses like Heritage,Legend Regency, Bowers, ect. this is the only information I have found. for the moment. So the Next step is maybe a member of ANACS,knows something. Correction. NGC didnt Grade the 1 coin,It was ANACS.

One of the oldest sayings we have in this hobby is "Buy the book before the coin". You can always use the ANA libray. It's one of the best percs you have from joinging. Good luck

It's all research. This whole hobby is research. We're are you getting theses coins? If ebay the seller will have the information. Retail market salesman will have it. Otherwise you hit the books. I can only suggests the library here. We all do research. That's how we learn. We don'tnow about every coin sometimes someone will recognize it but that's far and few between. You might get lucky. Someone might know. Even the red book could help. But you need books on coins your going to collect. They only help. And it stays with you longer.
