finally found a wholesome seated dollar


I've been looking for a type example for about 6 months, after selling another SLD that I liked, but didn't love. So many of the coins in this series look scrubbed or messed with, even if they're straight graded.

This 1870 presented itself at a GC auction recently, and it checked all my boxes—great original-looking eye appeal, a thick skin, some character/color, generally uniform surfaces, and no problems. It arrived this week and I'm very pleased.

The coin I sold was a 58, but this is a happy downgrade to this 50 (my minimum grade for my type set). Any and all comments welcome, even if you don't like it as much as I do.

Nothing is as expensive as free money.
