WHY DO 1923 SILVER DOLLARS SAY TRVST INSTEAD OF TRUST?
This question comes up frequently. If you think about it for a few moments, how likely would it be for the Mint to make the same "mistake" on hundreds of millions of coins struck over a 14-year period without fixing it? The explanation is that it's NOT an error, just artistic license!
In the 1920s it was a common affectation for artists to use the Latin alphabet for items that were designed in the Classical style. Latin doesn't have the letter U; V was both a vowel and consonant like the letter Y in English can be either. You had to decipher from the context. If you saw the letter V in a place where a vowel was needed you automatically replaced it with a U sound when speaking or reading.
Both dollars and quarters from that era used the Latin spelling so they both read TRVST. The same usage is also found on many buildings, medals, and paintings from that time.
The Coin Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent Numismatic Specialist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
