Hi everyone I am new to coin collecting and I have come across an 1885 Trade Dollar.
Apparently these are rare and there were only 5 proofs made can anyone tell me if these coins were ever in circulation? or if this particular dated coin was amongst those that were used in China?
 
I do know that some versions prior to 1876 were made for Asia but i have found nothing stating this particular dated coin.
 
Any help will do!Confused

 You have one of the thousands of fakes that have been made. Hopefully you did not pay too much for it.
