Rarity in MS-60 to 62 Grades

Various business strike issues in the trade dollar series are listed in ascending order of rarity, from the commonest to the rarest. The first figure of the estimate range is used in determining the order. In this and the following charts, if there is a tie, and the second figure is different, the second figure determines the order. Otherwise, a tie is indicated.

By comparing this and the other charts, it will be seen that the rarity of a given variety changes from one grade level to another.
