No. San Francisco did not strike seated Liberty dollars until 1859. In fact, the first branch mint to strike dollars was New Orleans in 1846.

Recent years have seen an enormous number of counterfeit coins appear on the market, mostly dollar (or dollar-sized) pieces and most made in the Far East. The quality ranges from excellent to laughably bad, with (as you see) impossible dates or mint marks.

Is there an oversize seated liberty dollar?

Not a real one. There are silver rounds with the seated liberty design that would be about 25% larger than an original. There are also "coins" the size of coasters made of base metals, but I have not seen a seated dollar in this set. And, when William J. Bryan was running for president, a rival had double-sized silver coins made to show what would happen to the monetary system if he were elected, but that would probably have been a Morgan Dollar.

Who on a silver dollar?

A silver dollar can feasibly mean at least three different coins. From 1840-1873 the Seated Liberty dollar was minted. It depicts a seated woman (an idealized Lady Liberty). From 1878-1921 the Morgan silver dollar was minted. It features again Lady Liberty, modeled after a school teacher named Anna Williams. From 1921-1935 the Peace silver dollar was minted. It was designed by Anthony de Francisci to represent Lady Liberty modeled by his wife Teresa. Other commemorative silver dollars have been minted since, but after the 1930's and 40's real silver dollars came out of circulation. These three are probably what you are asking about.

The real answer is...Its not a 1906 Liberty dollar. Its a 1986 commemorative dollar with the 8 altered. The US did not make a liberty dollar in 1906. A "s" mint mark is a circulated coin and the "p" is collectors coin. Sorry to burst your bubble!

What is the value of an 1851 Indian Head dollar?

There were two types of dollar coins struck that year. Neither one carries an Indian head design. The large silver dollar carries a Seated Liberty image, while the small gold dollar carries a Liberty Head image. What you have is a well known novelty/fantasy piece. The 1851 Indianhead dollar isn't a counterfeit because there was never a real version produced by the U.S. Mint. They're made in China, contain no silver, and aren't worth anything.

What is a value of an 1851 silver dollar with apache on it?

From your description, this is a known privately made novelty piece. It is NOT an official U.S. Mint issued coin. A real silver dollar dated 1851 is a Liberty Seated dollar. The obverse of the coin has the Indian head design that is similar to the Indian cents of 1859 -1909. The reverse has the denomination of 1 dollar and the date within a wreath. It has no numismatic collectible value.

How do you tell if a 1851 silver dollar is real?

One of the easiest methods is to weigh it. A genuine 1851 Seated Liberty silver dollar should weigh 26.73 grams, or slightly less if it's heavily worn. If one side has an Indian head on it, similar to the cent minted 1859-1909, it's a novelty coin, and not worth anything.

No U.S. silver dollars have an Indian Head design, so if you have one it's not real. A genuine silver dollar coin dated 1851 would be a Seated Liberty coin. I have seen many 'fantasy' silver rounds with the Indian Head design with different dates, but they all have the 1oz .999 fine silver markings somewhere on the coin.
