    Ex: Eliasberg

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1002, Pollock-1134, Low R.6, PR66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. The William Barber Seated Liberty design. A seated Liberty faces left, with 13 stars ringing the rim and the date 1870 in exergue. She holds a shield with her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A cap rests atop a Liberty pole, and a scroll crosses the shield with LIBERTY raised above the ribbon. Regular-issue Seated silver dollar reverse. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    More than a dozen pieces were sold as part of complete silver sets from the half dime through the dollar, each coin featuring this design combination. This Premium Gem, formerly included in the esteemed Eliasberg Collection, showcases intermixed shades of peach-orange, ocean-blue, and rose-violet patina over flashy fields and pinpoint-sharp, modestly frosted motifs.
