Lot Description
1871-CC $1 AU55 NGC. The 1871-CC has attained just fame as the lowest-mintage Carson City Seated dollar, with a mere 1,376 examples coined in August of that year, though the 1873-CC Seated dollar is more elusive today. This lightly worn example is highly attractive, with mixed silver-gray and russet-violet shadings dominating each side. The strike is strong overall, and aside from an old pinscratch near Liberty's left (facing) shoulder, the surfaces are surprisingly mark-free. A worthy survivor of high importance to the connoisseur of Old West silver. Census: 6 in 55, 10 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
