The surfaces of this piece are bright throughout, with a pale layer of golden and lilac toning. The brightness and color is evenly matched on each side. Unlike several other circulated 1870-S dollars on the roster, there are no mentionable or distracting marks or other problems on this piece. Both sides show the normally expected number of small abrasions that a coin would receive from circulation or as a pocket piece; the brightness is also consistent with several years' residence in a pocket. The only larger mark that helps identify this as the Stickney-Miles-Queller piece is located to the left of the O in OF. The strike is soft, as always, on the head of Liberty. The mintmark is also predictably small, and it appears to have been weakly punched into the reverse die.

Jbuck: I would love to see this one in my 7070 filling that last hole!

What exactly is the Stickney-Miles-Queller piece? What is the significance?

Newguy22: the 1870-S dollar is a rare coin, with only about 10 known. The names represent previous documented owners of this specific coin. It's the pedigree, which is important to anyone who might potentially be shopping for an example.

I can see the merit of having this one for a pocket piece.

I might even leave it in the holder. Nah.

If ya got it flaunt it baby.

As mentioned previously, I most definitely need a coin like this... or her less attractive cousin... to finish of the 7070.

You know full well it would be cracked. But you also know I would not use my bare hands to insert it into the 7070.

Even I, aka "Ken the Cracker", wouldn't crack out a coin where there were only 10 known examples - so I was going for full on absurd with the "use your thumb" comment

Wow, just looked that coin up - Numismedia has it at $500k+

Yeah, you knew I was full on silly when I made that claim.

I have yet to spend $500 on a coin, let alone $500k.

For the record, my no-motto Seated dollar, the reigning price champion, was $450 as presented here.
