Chop Marked Trade Dollar

Coins | Doug S.

Hi all,Been absent for a while, Ive been engaged in other hobbies a bit, to help keep me busy during this Covid business. At any rate just got this, purchased from eBay. Ive always wanted a chop marked trade dollar that was heavily used and had a history demonstrated by its wear and marks.I was looking st a MS 61 chop dollar to purchase but wasn't willing to pay more than it was worth because it my view how can a chop dollar be graded MS 61 when it has been circulated as evidenced by the chop mark?? Am I wrong in this view?RegardsDougPS iPhone photo ergo sideways. LOL

Coins | Doug S.

Relatively new collector here. Right now trying to assemble the Mercury set. I think it is one of the most beautiful coins in US coinage history. Love the concept behind the design.
