Liberty Seated Dollars
Seated $1 1843 1843
Choice $825 Deep Gray Toning, Steely Fields, Unspoiled and Attractive. 1990s ANACS grading brought the popular small white holder and accurate assessments. As a result, many of these holders have been left alone and still actively trade in the marketplace. Case in point is this naturally toned 1843 Seated half with crusty gray patina. Under that "skin" are steely fields which present themselves well under a bright light. In particular, the gun metal blues on the reverse are quite attractive. Abrasions are limited to one hidden contact mark to the right of the cap, otherwise the fields are close to pristine. Let's remember that we are discussing an EF coin that has seen circulation. Overall, a thoroughly pleasing type set possibility with perfect originality.
Seated $1 1846 1846
Choice $3650 Superbly Preserved, Rose-Gray Obverse Patina, Pristine Steely Fields, Fully Struck. An attractive and well preserved 1846 Seated dollar that warrants attention. Steely fields issue notable reflectance under angled lighting. This a fully choice example with intermixed mottled aquamarine, rose, and gray shades on the obverse while the reverse sports patches of olive surrounded by midnight blues. Fields are essentially unabraded and most pleasing during a 10x inspection. Worthy of a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Housed in new large font NGC holder. Please note that the images emphasize greenish shades while the coin in hand will exhibit strong rose tones.
Seated $1 1847 1847
Choice $1775 Classic Steely Gray Surfaces, Bold Reflectance, CAC Approval. It must be recognized that early Seated dollar were struck based on tendered bullion and not generally intended for circulation. 1847 date silver dollars mintage amounted to 140,750 and a high enough quantity that renders the issue as a type coin. This well preserved survivor exhibits old time surfaces with steely gray patina including peripheral olive toning. Fields are brilliant steely and perfectly original. A strong example that is worthy of consideration. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert and CAC approval.
Seated $1 1859O 1859-O
Choice $1150 New November 19! Choice Original, Island City Collection.. This New Orleans piece exhibits a thick skin of gray and rose patina, marked by lighter color at the high points. A few scattered ticks are noted on the figure of Liberty. CAC notes 143 coins total, with 26 examples in AU and 80 pieces in Mint State. These coins circulated little, and the CAC grade distribution is top-heavy, as expected. The CAC guide value is $1,150 in EF45. Following the Coinage Act of 1853, Seated dollars contained slightly more silver than two half dollars, meaning that most pieces coined were intended for international trade. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval.
Seated $1 1860O 1860-O
Original $3350 Near-Choice Original, New Orleans Collection. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.
Seated $1 1871 1871
Gem $15400 Exceptional Eye Appeal, Partially Mirrored Fields, Pristine Surfaces, Osprey Collection. The Osprey Collection is back with a gem 1871 Motto Liberty Seated dollar offering that should garner considerable attention. Fields are partial mirrored with the associated reflective luster that explodes during bright light assessment. Surfaces are entirely pristine and unabraded which further enhanced viewing. The in-hand green and rose shades are transparent to the underlying luster. Please don't be fooled by the GFR images, this piece is far from a dark patina with full access to the mirrors with angled light. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2022) holder with CAC approval. CAC has approved 17 at grade with only five better at huge pricing premium to the offer example.
Trade Dollars
Trade $1 1874 1874
Gem $3550 Gem Original, Osprey Collection.. Pleasing rose and maroon patina blankets both sides of this GFRC-rated Gem example, with deeper shades at the rims. Central figures are outlined by more intense color that clings to the recessed points. The strike is typical, with Liberty's head a touch soft. The overall eye appeal is strong, and, combined with a low CAC population, this coin will attract significant attention. CAC has approved 41 pieces in all grades, with 17 coins finer. The CAC price guide value is $3,750. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval.

Original HOLD
Steely Fields, Ebony-Blue and Rose Patina, Bart Chapman Collection.. The 1874-S Trade Dollar was struck primarily to be used in the China trade with 2,549,000 struck that year.

Rose-gray coloration is more prevalent on the reverse though the fields are consistently steely with the obverse. A few scattered field ticks are noted on either side of "seated" Liberty.
