I'm a few weeks late, but I ended up going with an 1872 Seated dollar for $125 in what I would probably call VG/F. LCS guy said it would probably come back with a details grade. He said he typically sees maybe a couple of these a year, but recently took in about a half dozen (and several trade $) in one transaction.

That left me money for some other coins to fill some holes in the 7070: a 1917 Type 1 SLQ and arrows Seated dime, as well as some cash to put aside for our family vacation this summer. Thanks for all the recommendations, folks! Pics later.
Oldest circulation finds: Cent 1902; 3CN 1867; Nickel (Buffalo/no date); Dime 1914; Quarter 1876; Half 1936; Dollar 1900; Banknote 1928 $2; Foreign 1917 3d (Great Britain)

Well done.

You got a good deal with the Seated dollar at $125, even at vg/f grade. This would have been my first choice except you usually cannot get a Seated dollar in any decent shape for around $200. Well done indeed!

Here it is. Not perfect, certainly, but also not a bad coin IMO. If you were to assign a grade, what would you give it?

Can't see the details on the shield (on the obverse) due to the glare. That shield is a key grading diagnostic.

But, I'll say its F15.
