1870 Liberty Seated Silver Dollar. OC-5. Rarity-3+. MS-66+ (PCGS).Single finest certified at PCGS, this CC##1 1870 dollar is a fantastic condition rarity from the later Liberty Seated series. Intensely lustrous surfaces exhibit a smooth frosty texture that borders on pristine. Generally brilliant, we note a few wisps and blushes of pale reddish-gold iridescence that are more prevalent on the obverse. Well struck for the type with most design elements sharp, even the most discerning collector will be impressed by this beautiful premium Gem example.<p>Similar to that achieved for the 1869, the circulation strike mintage for the 1870 amounted to an unusually large (by Liberty Seated dollar standards) total of 415,000 pieces. These were struck at the request of bullion depositors, and many were used in the export trade. From 1869 through the series end in 1873, the Liberty Seated dollar was better able to compete with the Mexican dollar in the China trade due to a tax in the former country that was first levied in 1869. Since dollars sent to China were melted, and enough examples have survived to make the 1870 one of the more common Liberty Seated issues in an absolute sense, an unusually large number of examples must have been retained in the United States. This is likely the result of production at the Comstock reaching a point where there was enough excess silver that some of it was deposited for coinage into dollars that would serve as a useful storehouse for the precious metal, and not necessarily because all of the coins were needed for the export trade. Common date status or not, of course, all circulation strike Liberty Seated dollar issues are scarce to rare in Mint State preservation. Indeed, many of the 1870 dollars that were retained in the United States eventually saw commercial use (and a good many were subsequently melted), so the survival of such as flawless coin as offered here is a matter of rare chance. A fleeting bidding opportunity for a coin that would serve with distinction in the finest type or date set.PCGS# 6963.
