Finest certified Proof 1870 Seated Liberty $1
This pricey highlight is the single-finest certified 1870 Seated
Liberty dollar, graded Proof 67 Ultra Cameo by NGC with an NGC Star
indicating visual appeal.
Although the 1870 Proof dollar saw a mintage of 1,000 pieces, many
may have been melted, and Heritage notes that Proof silver dollars
from 1870 are scarcer than Seated Liberty Proof dollars with similar
mintage levels from other years.
Heritage notes that this example is “almost certainly” the finest
known example and observes, for pedigree purposes (to help identify
this coin in future sales), “a small patch of obverse planchet
roughness in the field between stars 1 and 2, and a single dark fleck
on Liberty’s neck.”
The piece, which exhibits virtually no toning, was offered
relatively recently at Heritage’s September 2013 Long Beach Expo
auction where it sold for $41,125.
