Seated $1 1841 1841
AU58 NGC
370994007
Original $1750 Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Faint Gold Patina, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Missouri Collection. Mintage of 173,000 and very scarce in mintage as none were saved by the banks of that era. Q. David Bowers comments that, "In circulated grades: The mintage of 1841 was fairly high, but the availability of circulated specimens belies this. In general, fewer circulated 1841 dollars appear on the market than do those dated 1840, although nearly three times as many 1841s were struck. The explanation for this is not known." One might consider the 1841 date to be underrated at current pricing levels. This lovely AU58 example offers bold frosty cartwheel luster and is perfectly original. Strike is complete with rounded stars while both obverse and reverse dies are lightly clashed. Blemish wise, there is one bag mark in the right obverse field immediately to the right of the drapery. A quality offerings that has lots of appeal beyond the marginal GFRC images. The example is essentially untoned with some faint gold at the rims during bright light viewing. An important offering from the Missouri Collection with close to mint state device features by at half the cost.

Original $1050 Original Gun Metal Gray, Mirrored Fields, Typical Strike, Missouri Collection. The 1842 date sports a relatively high mintage of 184,618 for early Liberty Seated dollars. This surviving example is strictly original with medium gray patina that becomes darker at the stars and reverse legend. When viewing under a light source, the mirrored fields are activated and offer reflective golden gray coloring that is pleasing. Strike is a tad weak at the top of Liberty's head and on the stars 8 through 13 along with some reverse device weakness. There are no distracting blemishes to discuss. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. A nice original piece from the Missouri Collection.

3608278007
Original $1250 Low Mintage Date, Double Die and Misplaced Date Obverse, Original Gray Patina, Residual Luster, Hammered Strike, Missouri Collection. A low mintage of only 20,000 and the first year of limited Seated dollar strikes at the Philadelphia mint. Q. David Bowers comments on the 1844 low mintage date as follows, "The year 1844 was notable for the first of low-mintage silver dollars of this design. Scant supplies of silver bullion continued to be one of the main problems facing the mint, and the situation was not made easier by the fact that many United States silver coins were shipped to Europe and Asia in payment for import transactions. Only one delivery of silver dollars was made this year; that of 20,000 pieces on December 31st." This surviving example, from the Missouri Collection, is accurately graded as the AU50 level. Surfaces are original with light gray patina that harbors shades of rose and blues also. Crisp steely luster is evident when viewing under a light source. Strike is complete and blemishes are to a minimum. All 1844 Seated dollars were struck from a single die pair. The obverse is doubled at the shield and scroll and there is an extra misplaced digit in the lower gown folds. Housed in newer NGC holder.

2283364004
Original $3750 Eye Appeal, Proof Like, Virginia Collection. An above average example after reviewing Heritage Archive sales results for past five years. This attractive dollar is even white with reflective proof like fields. Mint frost throughout Liberty's gown and reverse eagle wings is evident with little disturbance other than a blemish on the lower leg/knee. When rotating under light, the fields and main devices reflect light without any marks or disturbances that would detract. Definitely a special inclusion into an advanced set dollar set. The images indicate the dollar is lightly toned but this is not the case. Again the dollar is even white with PL fields and uniform color. Housed in old NGC holder.

Choice $1950 New January 26! Choice Original, Classic Gun Metal Gray-Blue Patina, Steely Reflective Luster, Accurate Graded. Locating perfectly original Liberty Seated dollars will prove to be challenging as most in the marketplace have one issue or another. Dipped or lightly cleaned and retoned Seated dollars are commonplace in TPG holders and it takes a discerning eye to find those with natural and unmolested surfaces. Case in point is this lovely 1847 Seated dollar that resides in older NGC holder with CAC approval. Having this level of quality in GFRC inventory is seen as a badge of honor. Surfaces are reflective with no hairlines and other distracting blemishes. Toning is classic gun metal gray that one comes to expect on choice original silver coinage. Under a bright light, the gray patina transitions to faint blue and rose while exposing lightly mirroed fields. This is the appearance that collectors should be striving for, whether attempting a date and mintmark set or searching for that perfect large denomination type coin. CAC approval captures the strict originality and overall eye appeal. A strong offering for the selective collector.

Strike is nearly complete with a few obverse stars lacking connected centrils while reverse eagle devices are fully impressed. There are a few scattered micro blemishes on the obverse consistent with the grade. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. A fine numismatic offering from the Ft. Lauderdale Collection.

Overall, a well above average specimen for the selective collectors who strives for max value for his numismatic budget. Housed in early blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and embossed PCGS logo on reverse. Securing CAC approval for Seated dollars is difficult, therefore this example warrants serious attention. A top quality offering from the Osprey Collection.

Market Acceptable $2250 Rare Low Mintage Date, Reflective Gun Metal Gray-Blue Surfaces, Attractive Overall Appearance, Details Grade, Missouri Collection. A rare date in the Liberty Seated dollar series with a mintage of only 7,500. The 1850s begins a timeframe when Seated dollar production plummeted at the Philadelpha mint. Q. David Bowers calls out this fact and provides a potential reason for the mint moving to strike small sized gold dollars rather than the unpopular heavy silver dollars. He states the following, "The production of Liberty Seated silver dollars at the Philadelphia Mint hit an all-time low in 1850. The reason for this is not clear in government records, but I believe the explanations are simple. To expand on the commentary given under 1849, the following seems to be a likely scenario: The gold dollar, introduced in 1849, was popular in government circles and at the Mint, and saw extensive use by the public. At the same time, the silver dollar was not popular and was widely criticized. The year 1850 saw a tremendous production of gold dollars, amounting to 481,953 at the Philadelphia Mint alone, a quantity far greater than had been made of any Liberty Seated silver dollar. It seems to me that the Treasury was trying to promote the new gold dollar as the coin of choice of this denomination, and to minimize the silver dollar." This surviving example currently resides in a newer NGC holder with AU Details designation. GFRC has chosen to assign a Market Acceptable quality rating as the overall eye appeal and coloring is acceptable coupled with an abscence of any mechanical cleaning. In other words, this piece has no hairlines whatsoever. Surfaces offer a steely reflective luster along with gun metal gray patina. There are a few scattered field ticks but none distracting. Struck with Open 5 obverse die along with bold repunching under the 0 digit in the date. Not every Liberty Seated dollar collector can locate and afford a strictly original example of the 1850 date in AU condition. A problem free AU55 example will be a $3500 to $4500 expenditure depending on eye appeal. This offering, from the Missouri Collection, provides similar eye appea but at a substantially lower price.

Gem $15000 New January 11! Gem Original, Circa 2001 PCGS Holder, Incredible Eye Appeal, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Conservatively Graded. Collecting Liberty Seated dollars is a substantial undertaking. The serving populations are quite low in AU and Mint State outside of the omnipresent 1859-O and 1860-O dates and the more available 1840s dates. Locating Philadelphia struck specimens from the 1850 presents a keen challenge. At the 2018 FUN show, the GFRC team located and purchase this gem original 1853 example that is accurately graded as MS64 with CAC approval. A complete set was being broken up with this 1853 dollar offering the best appeal of most dates in the set. The preservation is amazing with eye catching frosty cartwheel luster that is now dominant on the obverse. Surfaces are lightly toned with a thin gold skin that is more apparent on the lower left obverse along with date punch area. Bright light is an absolutely joy as I've seen few pieces in my dealer career with this amount of luster and overall eye appeal. Placing a 10x loupe on the surfaces of such a large denomination piece may appear excessive. The inspection revealed several tiny field ticks overall and one bag mark. Being this critical is important for full disclosure only. Housed in early blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. The holder generation is probably 2000-2001 timeframe when PCGS grading was conservative as compared to today's standards. CAC approval must have been a foregone conclusion on this amazing specimen. If looking for a superior Liberty Seated dollar type coin with date rarity credentials, then please consider this example.

Cleaned $700 Ver Scarce Date, Old Cleaning, Reflective Surfaces, Gray-Gold Patina, Accurately Graded, Missouri Collection. Mintage of 255,700 but most were shipped to northern China for international commerce. Q. David Bowers states that, "In circulated grades: the vast majority of the mintage of over a quarter million 1859 Liberty Seated dollars went to the Orient, where they were soon melted. Examples of this high-mintage date are scarce today in all grades." The surviving example offers bold high end AU details but has been cleaned. There are hairlines throughout the obverse fields and below the eagle on the reverse. Surfaces have retoned an even gray during in hand viewing while a light source exposes strong golden hues. Strike is complete. The darker toning streaks on the reverse appear to be from typical rubber band contact. In summary, a rare date due to low surviving population that is priced consistent with the surface conditions. Housed in newer NGC holder. From the Missouri Collection of Liberty Seated dollars.

Choice $1100 New February 10! Choice Original, Classic Light Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Whiskey Run Collection. Mintage of 217,000 at the Philadelphia mint. The 1860 date is believed to have been intended primarily for use in the export trade to China. Despite the relatively high circulation strike mintage, worn examples are quite scarce on today's market. This pleasing survivor offers classic light gray patina throughout obverse and reverse. A choice example at the EF40 grade level with no signifcant impairments to mention. Housed in PCGS old green holder. Another quality numismatic consignment from the Whiskey Run Collection.

Original New Price
$2750
Original Flashy Frosty Luster, Accurately Graded, Union Bridge Collection. Ok, I need to make a confession...this is the first mint state Seated dollar handled by GFRC. I've sold several mint state Trade Dollars and now moving quickly into Liberty Seated dollars as so much fun to explore new denominations. This piece is a fitting start though well known to be a common date in high grades after several bags of 1859-O and 1860-O date examples were released by the U.S. Mint from their banks vaults. One immediately appreciates the bold flashy luster that is strictly original. I doubt that this dollar has ever been dipped as the frosty luster is bold. The assigned MS62 grade is to be expected due to some bag marks as is seen on most mint state examples. Housed in older PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert.

Original $940 New February 20! Original, Gun Metal Gray Patina, Residal Luster, Accurately Graded, Burch Creek Collection. New Images February 20, 2018. One of the higher mintage Seated dollars with 515,000 struck. 1860-O dollar was probably intended for the Asia export trade, which at the time was active through New Orleans and other American ports. Much of the half million were used in this manner with several tens of thousands probably held for domestic usage. Nearly all of the mint state 1860 New Orleans Seated dollars on the market are quite baggy due to being stored in bags before release during 1962-1964 timeframe. Estimates are between 2000-6000 additional pieces being made available. This example, from the Burchs Creek Collection, probably reached circulation after being minted. Surfaces are blemish free and strictly original resulting from light circulation. There is ample residual luster under the natural gray patina. The reverse is particularly attractive with light rose-gray and blues when viewed under a bright light. Accurately graded and housed in mid 1990s generation old white ANACS holder. An above average example.

Choice $3800 New February 6! Challenging Civil Date, Choice Original, Classic Gun Metal Gray Patina, Residual Luster, A Superior Example. A Civil War date with limited mintage of 30,700. Philadelphia struck 1864 silver dollars did not circulate domestically, rather their present rarity is due to most being exported. PCGS population report indicates a total of 45 pieces certified in all AU grades and we know how many of those are problematic survivors that still find their ways into holders. CAC has only approved 4 pieces in all AU grades (a tiny fraction of all certified by PCGS and NGC) with 2 in AU53, 1 in AU55 and another at the AU58 level. That is all.....so please consider this fact concerning this amazingly original 1864 dollar offering. Surfaces are perfectly original and so well preserved with a thin layer of gun metal gray patina. Steely reflective luster remains and is attractive under a light source. Residual mint frost is evident within and surrounding the major devices. GFRC images accurately capture the overall beauty and originality. Housed in early blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and embossed PCGS logo on the reverse that probably dates back to the late 1990s. An important offering that belongs in an advanced Liberty Seated dollar collection where superior preservation state is the imperative. Definitely not for value buyers.

Choice $3500 Civil War Date, Classic Gun Metal Gray Patina, Choice Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded. Later date Liberty Seated dollars offer an important historical window United State monetary policy and the dependence of bimetalism. Q. David Bower, in his well known book, Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia", indicates that during 1865 (final year of the Civil War), specie payments remained in suspension with no 1865 silver coins of any denomination placed into circulation on the East coast. Amazingly, most of the mintage of the 1865 silver dollar is believed to have been exported to Central and South America. Bower's points out that low mintage of 46,500 and many being exported leads to modern day rarity with circulated specimens being very scarce. He adds in the fact that the 1865 date is a rarity in mint state. Now let's examine the specimen being offered.... First impression is that of classic Seated dollar appearance that collectors strive to acquire; gun metal gray with blue hues. Surfaces are free of major distractions with a few field ticks that are fully toned over and of no comnsequence. Under bright light, the fields are steely blue with gray. Strike is complete. Clearly a solid example that is housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and accurately graded. This is a GFRC owned coin as I liked the overall appearance and rarity.

New February 4! Better Date, Choice Original, Light Gray, Honest Wear, Accurately Graded, A Pleasing Example . Mintage of 46,900. 1867 dated Liberty Seated dollars are quite elusive among similar dates of that the prior Civil War period. Few are known to exist as Asia export consumed many if not most of the Liberty Seated dollars minted during 1867. The trade with the Orient countries become active after the Civil War and most heavy silver pieces were shipped in liu of Mexican coinage. John W. McCloskey has written in the November 1982 Gobrecht Journal that, "The 1867 dollar is very rare and underrated in all circulated grades and is possibly the rarest of the Philadelphia Mint with-motto dates. The offered example is very well preserved with honest wear and light gray patina. Housed in PCGS old green holder with CAC approval. Surfaces are naturally toned with a few bag marks consistent with the grade. An important GFRC offering for the collector building a mid grade date and mintmark set.

Choice $1345 Choice Original, Uniform Gun Metal Gray-Blue Toning, Mirrored Surfacres, Fully Struck, Port Matilda Collection. This lovely 1870 Philadelphia struck Seated dollar is worthy of special consideration by collectors of the series. Eye appeal is high given the combination of classic gun metal gray-blue toned surfaces, mirrored fields and a complete strike. In hand viewing sees uniform gray surfaces with darker shades surrounding the stars and reverse legend. Bright light viewing exposes a different perspective that is so pleasing. The obverse toning melts to reveal lightly mirrored fields covered with transparent aquamarine blue patina. The reverse is essentially identical to the obverse with coloring most prominent around the legend and denomination. Rims are sharp with minimum wear. Blemish wise, there is one mark in the right obverse field to the right of the arm that can be seen on GFRC images. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A quality Seated dollar offering from the Port Matilda Collection to consider for a date set. Please note the lighter shaded area on left obverse is lighting reflections during photography and not on the dollar piece. Toning is uniform throughout obverse and reverse.

Popular 1876-CC Doubled Die Reverse die variety at an attractive pricing level.

Grading is accurate and designated AU58 Details. Surfaces are covered with a deep gun metal gray-blue patina that is secondary toning. Under the toning, faint hairlines are seen with careful inspection. This past cleaning results in reflective fields that are a bit too active to be original. Die doubling on lower reverse is bold with second olive branch distinct from the final rendering. Housed in new ANACS gold holder with standard ring insert. Not a perfect coin but perfectly acceptable for the double die reverse variety.

Choice $2250 Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Near Gem Original, Gray-Rose Patina, Mirrored Fields, Type I/I, Saco River Collection. During 1876, trade dollars were produced in high volume at the San Francisco Mint and were struck primarily from Nevada silver. Resulting mintage was 5,227,000 coins. Most coins were shipped to the Orient for commerce purposes while a few were circulated domestically, particularly before the demonetization act of July 22, 1876 took effect. The gorgeous example obviously did not reach the Orient and instead saw careful preservation for today's collectors to enjoyed. Die pairing hubs are Type I/Type I and typical for the date. A close inspection of this important Saco River Collection offering revealed mirrored fields and bold reflective cartwheel luster. The semi transparent rose-gray patina does not limit the luster. Rather bright light viewing exposes underlying rose, gold and sky blue shades. Fields are mostly blemish free with a few scattered micro lines needing to be mentioned. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Please give this lovely 1876-S trade dollar some special consideration. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert.
