The front of this coin is graced with the head of Lady Liberty in a seated position, and the reverse contains a left-facing bald eagle.

In 1866 the words "In God We Trust" were added to the dollar.

These coins were originally minted at the Philadelphia mint (these contain no mint mark), and were also later minted in New Orleans (O), San Francisco (S), and Carson City (CC).

All in all an amazing coin that saw the United States through such perilous times as the Civil War (18611865). This coin can be a bit more expensive that it's cousins the Morgan and Piece Dollars, but for the serious investor it may be worth it.
