Lot Description
1873-CC $1 VF25 NGC. Just 2,300 Seated dollars were struck at Carson City in 1873, compared to the six-figure mintage of Trade dollars that same year. The 1873-CC is the most challenging collectible Seated dollar for the year, since the supposed mintage of 700 1873-S specimens has never been confirmed. This moderately worn example has scattered light to moderate abrasions on pale silver surfaces splashed occasionally in gold. A fingerprint is noted in the field surrounding the arrowheads, but this adds character to the coin instead of serving as a distraction. An attractive and important piece. Census: 3 in 25, 21 finer (3/10).
