1870-CC Liberty Seated Dollar. NGC graded MS-61. Light greyish toning. Slightly prooflike. A lovely specimen of the first seated Liberty dollar from the Carson City, Nevada Mint. This piece is classified as MS-61, is somewhat Prooflike, and is an attractive example of the issue. The striking is about typical for 1870-CC, with some lightness on the head of details and on the stars. Both obverse and reverse are toned medium gray and gold. Just 11,758 were made of this issue, and from that quantity fewer than 1,000 exist today. Over the generations of collectors that have come and gone the 1870-CC has always been very popular with numismatists, representing as it does the only truly affordable seated dollar from this particular mint in Mint condition. Pop 6; 6 better. (PCGS # 6964) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.
