These images I took this morning should enlarge if clicked on and also display all issues with this coin. A smaller version pair of images also were replaced in post No 1.

The bigger and better the images, the uglier the damage will appear. I have seen worse Seated dollars. There doesn't appear to be overall typical hairline scratches for a cleaned coin. The surface marks to me look like (mostly) circulation hits except maybe below that dark stripe in the field on the reverse.
I suspect that the "burnt" area once upon a time, was more complete as a solid black mark and this is what remains.
It is the only one I have and fills a Type Coin hole in my collection.

I inherited this coin so cost is not an issue, but I wonder what it would fetch if sold with these images and honest description?
Thanks.

I'll guess $400 retail because it looks good from a distance. All the detail is there for a strong XF. It would make an excellent belt buckle coin on either side, but the condition and common date rule it out as a collector coin.

Liberty looks like she was pounded with a meat hammer.

My answer would be to sell it and look for a coin in the condition you desire. 1872 is the most common date (representing about 1/6th of all Seated dollars minted), and that coin is not in gradable condition.

The lowest reported mintage (for a coin which is known to exist), occurs for the 1852 silver dollar. The mintage was a mere 1,100.

The highest reported mintage occurred in 1872 at Philadelphia, when 1,105,500 coins were recorded as struck.

Total reported production across all circulation dates is 6,487,747. Of this amount, the Philadelphia Mint was responsible for producing 5,465,463 coins.

One additional thought:

If you want to get a nice AU or low Mint State example, look for ones from New Orleans dated 1859 or 1860. Both turned up in bags when the US Mint finally decided to empty the vaults of its silver in the late 60s/early 70s. These are the two dates where you are able to get an affordable Seated Liberty dollar in AU or even low mint state.
