Lot Description
1871-CC $1 XF45 PCGS. This important dollar is from the second year of production at the new Carson City Mint, and has the lowest mintage of any Seated dollar from this facility. Just 1,376 coins were produced. Probably a little less than 10% of the original mintage survives today; somewhere around 100 coins. Most are considerably worn and/or damaged. This is a lovely exception, with only light wear and excellent surfaces. Obligatory bagmarks are seen on this, as on all examples of this issue. A couple of other minor scratches and blemishes may be seen, but this is essentially a sound coin. The surfaces are light silvery-gray without any evidence of toning. Traces of luster remain in the protected areas near the devices and at the border. This is an important chance for the advanced Seated dollar collector to acquire this elusive issue. Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 11/2004), lot 7610.
