Description

Elusive Choice AU 1871-CC Dollar
Lowest-Mintage With Motto Issue

1871-CC $1 AU55 NGC. After a mintage of 11,758 silver dollars at the Carson City Mint in 1870, production dropped off dramatically, to just 1,376 pieces in 1871. In fact, the 1871-CC had the lowest mintage of any Seated Liberty dollar with the sole exception of the obscure (and unknown) 1873-S. While scarce in all grades, the 1871-CC is exceptionally difficult to locate in high grades. The opportunity to acquire an About Uncirculated example does not come along very often.
A touch of silver on the high points accents the golden-gray toning that covers the majority of both sides. We note a light scrape in the field from Liberty's shoulder to star 5 and a shallow mark near star 13 for pedigree purposes. There are no other significant abrasions. Census: 5 in 55, 11 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24ZH, PCGS# 6967)
