Standard Seated Dollar Patterns
1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-997, Pollock-1128, Low R.7

Liberty is seated left with 13 stars arranged around the periphery and the date 1870 below. Liberty's left hand holds an olive branch, and her right hand supports a shield over which is draped a scroll inscribed LIBERTY. A free-standing Liberty pole is behind. On the reverse, the denomination 1 DOLLAR is centered within a wreath of corn and cotton. The word STANDARD is at the top. Struck in silver with a plain edge.

1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-996, Pollock-1127, High R.7

A seated Liberty faces left, with 13 stars ringing the rim and the date 1870 in exergue. She holds a shield with her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A cap rests atop a Liberty pole, and a scroll crosses the shield with LIBERTY thereon. On the reverse a wreath of corn and cotton encloses 1 / DOLLAR, the latter in an upcurving arc, with STANDARD in tiny letters at the upper rim. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

The Judd reference notes this as the first appearance of the silver dollar denomination in the Standard Silver series, and that there is no reference to the country of origin on this "illogical" die combination. USPatterns.com estimates that perhaps a dozen are known.

1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-998, Pollock-1129, Low R.7

A seated Liberty faces left, with 13 stars ringing the rim and the date 1870 in exergue. She holds a shield with her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A cap rests atop a Liberty pole, and a scroll crosses the shield with LIBERTY thereon. On the reverse a wreath of corn and cotton encloses 1 / DOLLAR, the latter in an upcurving arc, with STANDARD in tiny letters at the upper rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Another "illogical die combination" with no reference to the United States of America--or IN GOD WE TRUST, for that matter--on either side. Perhaps a dozen exist.
