Lot Description
1872 $1 MS62 NGC. Deep forest-green and orange-gold embrace this crisply struck and satiny Seated dollar. Distributed faint marks on the right obverse field are concealed beneath the toning. Although the 1872 has a high mintage by the standards of the series, most pieces were exported to the Orient, where merchants demanded silver coins as payment instead of Federal paper money. Mint State survivors are very scarce.
