    1870-CC Seated Dollar, MS61
    Colorfully Toned CC Debut Coin

    1870-CC $1 MS61 ANACS. OC-2, R.5. This is the only obverse with the right base of the 1 positioned just left of center over the dentil. The reverse features a Wide CC mintmark. From a mintage of 12,462 coins, the 1870-CC is a better date in the Seated Liberty dollar series, but it is most actively pursued because of its status as the first silver dollar issue from the Carson City Mint. Osburn and Cushing estimate that 20 or fewer examples survive in Uncirculated condition, the finest among them in MS64.

    This MS61 Seated dollar is richly toned in a medley of multicolor hues that include blue, green, violet, and golden-orange. Minor softness appears on the left-hand stars and Liberty's head but the reverse is better-struck, as usual. Wispy marks beneath the patina limit the grade. Housed in a small-sized holder.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24ZE, PCGS# 6964)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
