Just freed this Trade dollar from it's PCGS holder to put in my 7070. My first time freeing a coin from a slab. I must confess, it felt good.

Curious what you would grade this at. I feel like PCGS was reserved in it's opinion. Thank you kindly.

I have no expertise in this series - so take the following as a guess.

F15 original surfaces, other than the chop mark. I can't tell by the photos what is going on at the lower reverse legend TRADE

The area at the A in TRADE is opposite the chop mark.

Nice looking coin! Does PCGS give a numerical grade to Trade dollars when there are chop marks?

F-12 and a good spot for the chop mark in my opinion.

Thanks everyone. It was graded by PCGS as VF-25.

I agree. Thought it didn't take much away from the eye appeal of the coin.
I've seen some unfortunate chop mark placements.
