We have such a demand for 1870-CC Liberty Seated silver dollars in the condition of the specimen offered here (really in any grade from VF-20 to XF-45). Collectors are enthused to own a well-preserved example of the first-year-of-issue silver dollar from the Carson City Mint. Specimens in the mid-range circulated grades are affordable and they insure that a “CC” coin enthusiast will receive plenty of details remaining on the piece selected, as well as naturally-worn surfaces that are pretty-much free of problems. We wish we could order such coins a half dozen at a time.

This XF-40 specimen delivers on all counts. The full letters in LIBERTY on the obverse’s Union shield add extra value, and the ever-so-slight glimmer of luster peeking through the gray-colored haze is a bonus. Some small, charcoal-colored patches on the obverse are typical of the silver sulfide process that is seen on many of these old, circulated silver coins from the Carson City Mint. When you flip the coin over to its reverse you get a full blast of some of the most delightful natural-gray color imaginable, not to mention the remarkably full details visible on the raised devices. An almost-hidden scrape that blends in with the feathers on the lower-left wing area on the reverse’s eagle is the only notable blemish.
