It’s always a joy to own an example of this lowest-mintage coin from the Carson Mint. Just the thought of a date-denomination combination with an estimated surviving population of only 100 or so pieces (in all grades) is exhilarating.

The example offered here is one of the finest known of this date. It is just a whisker away from Mint State status and features semi-prooflike fields and light, delicate mauve-gray patina. The detail on the high points is well defined and even the stars display bold striking. Contact marks and a few scattered hairlines are present, but barely visible beneath the toning.

Between PCGS and NGC there are approximately four Mint State examples graded of this date: 2 MS-64s, 2 MS-61s (resubmissions of some of the same coins account for inaccurate data in the pop reports). Reportedly, there is a combined total of seven AU-58s between the two services. The specimen offered here is certainly one of the finest examples of that total.

Our goal is to always seek out the best looking examples of Carson City coins within specific grade ranges as we can. We think our efforts really proved successful on this awesome 1871-CC Liberty Seated dollar.

The 1871-CC Liberty Seated dollar will never achieve the status of the 1794 dollar (mintage, 1,758), but it will probably always boast of a smaller surviving population than America’s first silver dollar. And its price will undoubtedly always be considerably lower as well. The question is: which one offers the best value?
