Question
1873 Sitting lady Liberty Coin one dollar
1873 Sitting lady Libe  
Hi,

Just got a question about this old coin I got some time ago it's an 1873 Sitting lady Liberty Coin one dollar

Since I don't live in the State pretty hard to evaluate it at the right price and I was wondering if you can help me with some info (details and estimate) about this coin.

Also I'm attaching some photos with the coin.

Thank you for your help.

Answer
Hi Dan,

Thank you for the pictures.

After blowing them up and comparing the coin to pictures of a genuine coin, I have doubts about yours being genuine.  There are small discrepancies in the design between yours and a real one.

You can use the CoinFacts page to compare and see all the specs :

As for value, IF yours is real, it will likely be worth US$300 to US$400

You can compare to actual sales on eBay :

I hope this helps,

Dan

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.
