A warm and inviting piece awash in even charcoal-gold patina. Both sides are boldly struck and quite smooth for a lightly circulated silver dollar of the No Motto Liberty Seated type. A shallow vertical obverse strike-through mark, as made, is noted from the rim to the bottom of Liberty's foot. Only 24,500 examples of the date were struck and the vast majority of known survivors from that press run are in much lower grades than that offered here. Choice for the grade, especially to the unassisted eye.
