The Carson City mint opened in 1870 and this is, of course, a numismatically significant issue as the first silver dollar made at this mint. There were just four issues of this type from the CC mint and the 1870-CC is the most available and affordable. It is not a really rare coin in EF grades but it is not seen often and many pieces have an unnatural appearance from having been cleaned or dipped.

This is a very appealing 1870-CC with an obverse that grades a full 45 in my opinion. The reverse is a bit darker and a bit less attractive, thus the grade. The obverse has delightful medium antique grey color with even hues and nearly full letters in LIBERTY; the reverse is a darker grey with a slight lilac overtone. There are no describable marks and the wear that this coin shows is even and gentle.

The last PCGS EF40 1870-CC silver dollar to sell at auction was Heritage 4/12: 4901, which was approved by CAC. It was very similar in appearance to the present coin and it realized $4,313.

If you are looking for a really nice 1870-CC dollar and have around $4,000-5,000 to spend, you would be hard-pressed to find one with more eye appeal than this example.
