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.
J-60. Gobrecht Dollar. Restrike. Plain edge, struck in silver. No stars obverse. Stars reverse. Die Alignment IV. An attractive Gobrecht with fields that retain considerable flash and are cleaner than expected for the grade. An attractive silver-gray patina, with a touch of gold, blankets both sides with a touch of iridescent blue and burnt-orange at the reverse rim.
Brilliant white luster flows across nearly mint state surfaces and a sharp strike. A very desirable first year 'Seated Dollar' that saw a mintage of a modest 61,005 pieces.
Sharp detail with lustrous light silver-white surfaces. Popular first year Seated Dollar.
Brilliant and flashy white surfaces exhibit a touch of attractive gold at the periphery and a sharp strike. Housed in an early light blue PCGS holder.
Sharp detail with just a touch of friction on the high points of the design. The core is flashy and white with light russet toning at the periphery.
Uncirculated Details. Cleaning.
Sharply struck silver-white surfaces that retain considerable mint luster. The second New Orleans mint Seated Dollar with modest mintage of only 40,000 pieces.
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!
A beautiful example that illuminates with subtle blended gold and gunmetal blue shades resting upon delightful silver-gray surfaces. Marks are minimal and well within the allowance for the grade. With 1 exception, all known proofs of this date are believed to be restrikes with a total of 12 pieces struck. A great rarity and a true prize for any collection!
Frosty and original silver-gray surfaces exhibit subtle gold tinting, strong luster, and a sharp strike. Only 33,140 pieces were minted and many were exported or melted making this one of the most elusive dates in the series with an estimated 300 survivors. A very lofty grade for this date. Only 4 pieces have graded numerically finer and they seldom see public trade.
A very scarce and underrated proof with an estimated 40 to 60 known. This is a very attractive coin with flashy mint luster and a faint champagne glow. The fields are very deeply mirrored and the design has modest frost. There are no significant marks and the eye appeal is exceptional. Including 'cameo' designated coins; PCGS has only graded 4 numerically finer.
Lustrous rich original surfaces exhibit a light blend of blue-gold shades and a solid strike. An issue with a mintage of 63,500 that is far scarcer than the numbers might suggest. Used as an early 'trade' dollar, many pieces were exported and melted. Only 15 piece have graded mint state at NGC with this MS-64 being tied for the highest graded at either NGC or PCGS! An important and highly desirable Seated Dollar.
Almost the entire 255,700 coin mintage was exported and most were melted. This is a desirable borderline unc. coin with full detail and lustrous surfaces that are delicately toned lime, gold, and pink.
A scarce and underrated date as nearly the entire mintage was exported to the Orient and subsequently melted. This example is very sharply struck with rich lustrous surfaces. The design features are frosted while the fields are semi proof-like and lightly toned.
Steel gray surfaces and solid detail.
Attractive platinum-white surfaces that exhibit a sharp strike and just a touch a 'rub'. A very tough date with a mintage of 20,000 and the only 'No Motto' type Seated Dollar struck at the San Francisco Mint.
Solid detail with steel-gray surfaces. A better date with a mintage of 20,000.
Sharp detail with pleasing steel-gray and gold surfaces that retain a bit of mint luster.
