Lot Description
1872-CC $1 VF35 NGC. The four Carson City issues in the Seated Dollar series are each more rare than any Morgan Dollar CC-mint issue, including the 1889-CC. The 1872-CC is much scarcer than the 1870-CC, although it is not quite as unobtainable as the 1871-CC and 1873-CC. Nonetheless, the 1872-CC, given its scant production of 3,150 pieces and the absence of contemporary Nevada collectors, is a formidable Silver Dollar rarity. Noticeable luster emerges from the plumage and stars of this bold example, and the rich apricot-gray toning does not conceal any singularly relevant marks. Minor granularity on the center of Liberty's shield is mentioned for pedigree purposes.
