Seated Liberty Dollars were struck from 1840 till 1873 and coins were made in Philadelphia, Carson City, New Orleans and San Francisco.
Seated Liberty Dollars after 1865 carry the reverse motto IN GOD WE TRUST. There are quite a few scarce and rare date Seated Liberty Dollars.
CAC. A very pleasing example of this popular first year Seated Dollar. The detail is sharp and the surfaces are a beautiful lustrous dove gray.
A nearly mint state example of this first year Seated Dollar with a modest mintage of 61,005. The strike is needle-sharp with semi proof-like fields covered by vibrant brilliant mint luster.
A scarce date with just 24,500 minted and few high grade survivors. 1851 had a mintage of a mere 1,300, yet more mint state coins have been graded at PCGS for this date than the 1845! This is a very pleasing example with flashy white luster coming off semi proof-like surfaces. The strike is very sharp and the surfaces are attractive with just minimal minor marks. This is the only MS-62+ graded at PCGS with just three MS-63's and a single MS-64 grading finer.
Surfaces display a blend of violet and gold tints and splashes of color. Wear is trivial and a bit of flash lends itself to good eye appeal. The first 'O' mint dollar.
Vibrant white luster and well struck with excellent eye appeal. Housed in an early PCGS holder.
Scarce in any grade with a mintage of just 40,000. This is a beautiful example with sharp detail and pleasing surfaces.
CAC. Restrike. No 'original' proofs for 1851 have ever been graded at PCGS and it is widely believed that none were ever minted. The U.S. Mint did make a few of these 'restrikes' for collectors in the late 1850's and 1860's and it is estimated that 40 to 60 are known. The present coin is exceptional for the grade with strong 'cameo' contrast and a precise strike. The deep mirrored fields are very flashy with a light smoky-gold hue while the design elements have nice silver-white frost. The eye appeal is outstanding. We are delighted to offer this important numismatic rarity!
Restrike. PCGS has graded a single 'original' proof for 1852 and it is reported that 1 or 2 more may exist. Just like in 1851, the Mint struck 'restrikes' for collectors and it is estimated that just 30 to 35 exist. This example is very pleasing with deep mirrored fields and enough frost on the design to lead us to feel it merits a 'cameo' distinction. Both sides are very flashy with the obverse being white while the reverse has a faint lavender-blue hue. The surfaces are very attractive with no significant marks and the eye appeal is strong.
A lovely early proof with a needle-sharp strike and nearly white surfaces except for a delicate champagne hue. This beauty is devoid of significant marks and modest frost on the design produces a light 'cameo' and wonderful eye appeal. Very scarce with an estimated proof mintage of just 60 coins. The date is also rare as a business strike with just 26,000 minted and a very low survival rate. Including 'Cameo' designated coins; PCGS has only graded 4 coins numerically finer.
Sharp detail with an even silver-gray obverse and a variegated reverse with various shades of gray and areas of bright lustrous silver.
Beautifully mirrored surfaces bask in a lovely orange gold interior and a periphery that transitions from ruby to turquoise. No official mintage figures exist. The "Redbook' lists a mintage of 210 with other sources slightly higher and lower. Regardless of the exact number, this is truly an alluring and rare proof-only date.
A nice 'fresh' Seated Dollar with flashy white luster and a very sharp strike.
Sharp detail with nice original surfaces.
This popular Civil War date saw a modest 30,700 minted and is scarce in any grade. This is a choice mint state example with cream-white luster and a sharp strike. The surfaces are devoid of significant marks.
CAC. A stunning brilliant Gem with heavy white frost on the design and very faint hues of gold,and ice-blue. Only 600 minted with a single 65+ Cameo grading finer at PCGS.
This popular rare date, from the first year of operation at the Carson City mint, had a mintage of just 12,462. This is a well-detailed, problem-free coin with nice steel-gray surfaces.
The Carson City Mint struck Seated Liberty Dollars during the final 4 years of the series with 1871-CC having the lowest mintage at just 1,376 coins. This is a very pleasing problem-free example with solid detail and nice light steel-gray surfaces.
Sharply struck surfaces exhibit creamy white luster and traces of champagne accent along the periphery. Over a million minted but few have survived in high grade. Only 4 coins grade numerically finer at PCGS and none of these have traded publicly in over ten years.
CAC. Rich champagne shadings provide excellent eye appeal to this last year of issue beauty. Cameo devices stand out quite nicely against striking mirrored fields. Pedigreed to the famed Garrett collection.
