With CAC approval.




Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

No where near close. I would be close if I purchased every crappy sld that came up for auction. But this series requires patience to find high quality coins. 97% of the Seated dollars that come up for auction or become available for sale are garbage. 95% of them were cleaned by dealers in the 60's, 70's, and 80's in a ill-fated attempt to make them more competitive with Morgan dollars. Problem is Seated dollar weren't stored and hoarded like Morgans.

I have a running thread link posted below in my signature area if you want to watch my progress.

It's definitely hard to find nice higher-grade SLDs that are CAC approved. Most of the ones I see have market acceptable damage. I'm having a hard time finding an original, but affordable, example for my 7070.

Fellas, this wasn't a post to solicit grading opinions. It's graded au-55. I was just showcasing a new acquisition

Beautiful, I've got a small collection of Seated Liberty halves, and have been considering some dollars.
Curious - 'ballpark', what's the going rate for a coin like that?
