    1870-CC Silver Dollar, AU58
    Prooflike Fields

    1870-CC $1 AU58 PCGS. OC-7, R.5. Designated a near-Mint coin due to trivial high-point friction on Liberty's breast and knee, this 1870-CC Seated dollar shows no other characteristics that would prevent a Mint State designation. The fields are prooflike, and the devices are boldly struck. There are few light handling marks in the obverse fields, but none are individually distracting. Both sides display a light golden hue. The 1870-CC silver dollar is scarce in all grades, but high-end AU coins with the degree of eye appeal shown by this piece are decidedly rare. Despite the small mintage for this date of 11,758 pieces, the Osburn-Cushing website, Seateddollarvarieties.com, lists nine different die marriages, composed of four obverses and six reverses. This die pair is distinctive for its closely spaced mintmark and left-positioned date.
