Description

1870-S Gold Dollar, MS61
Last Branch Mint Issue

1870-S G$1 MS61 NGC. The 1870-S is the last gold dollar struck at a branch mint. With a mintage of 3,000 pieces, this is a popular issue and a true rarity. Only about 125 to 170 specimens are estimated to have survived to the present day, 35 to 50 of which are Mint State. Most of the latter are in the MS60 to MS62 range. Deep orange-gold patina blushed with lavender and sky-blue graces the lustrous surfaces of this MS61 example, and the strike is sharp throughout. A series of moderate-size contact marks in the right obverse field are all that stand in the way of a higher grade. Census: 11 in 61, 20 finer (2/13).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25D7, PCGS# 7570)
