We don’t know anyone who collects Carson City coins that doesn’t appreciate the significance of 1870-CC Liberty Seated silver dollars. These were, after all, the very first coins ever struck at the Carson City Mint (some time in early February 1870). Mint State examples of this date-denomination are especially desirable because they are extremely rare.

The piece offered here offers all the splendor one could desire, without having to pay over $100,000 for one of the MS-64 specimens. The surfaces are semi-Prooflike and are mostly white, with only a faint beige haze glazing them in sections. The details on the high points on both sides are mostly bold, with only slight weakness at the top of Ms. Liberty’s head. Light violet and turquoise toning creeps into the denticles around the obverse’s periphery. Scattered contact marks and a few wispy hairlines embrace the fields on both sides, all of which are in strict accordance with the assigned grade.

This appears to be the variety with the date shifted slightly to the right and the left C in the mintmark shifted ever so slightly to the left of the arrow feather’s lower tip.

Overall, this is a stunning example of the Carson City Mint’s first crop of coins.
