1870 was the first year the Carson City mint issued Silver dollars. The present example displays faint traces of cabinet friction on high-points and evidence (by coloration) of a distant cleaning.
- Designed by Christian Gobrecht.
- Obverse: Features Liberty seated holding a pole with a Liberty cap in her left hand and a shield in her right hand.
- Reverse: Depicts an eagle holding an olive branch and a cluster of arrows, with a shield on its chest.
- Mintage of only 12,462 pieces.
- The issue is extremely rare in mint state with a mere 32 coins graded MS-60 or better by both PCGS and NGC combined!
