1861 Seated Liberty Dollar, MS64+
1861 $1 MS64+ PCGS. The 1861 Seated Liberty dollar claims a
mintage of 77,500 pieces. Unlike silver dollars of earlier years,
the 1861 was not used primarily as an international trade coin.
While some examples were exported, a considerable number remained
in this country. It seems that many of the coins that remained in
domestic holdings were later melted to provide silver for
subsidiary coinage. The 1861 is an elusive date in the Seated
dollar series, especially in high grade.
Bold Strike, Nice Luster
