Collectors seeking a Mint State representative of the 1866-1873 Motto Seated dollar series would be wise to focus on either the 1871 or the 1872. Here's a pleasing Brilliant Uncirculated example of the latter delivery that is essentially untoned. The strike is acceptably sharp for the type, and the only individually mentionable distraction among the scattered abrasions is a tiny milling mark to the left of the 1 in the date.
