The 1871 is one of the more available dates in the With Motto series of Seated dollars, which gives the collector an opportunity to acquire this challenging type in Mint State and at a reasonable cost. This piece is well defined on the reverse, but shows very minor softness on the head of Liberty and several of the star centrils, as is usually seen on this date. The obverse field is semi-prooflike, the reverse is frosty. Rich sunset-gold, red and blue colors surround the obverse border of this lightly abraded example.
