1880/79-CC Morgan Silver Dollar. VAM-4. Top 100 Variety. Reverse of 1878. MS-67 (NGC). An essentially pristine survivor from this Carson City issue that ranks among the finest survivors known. The complexion is intensely frosty and platinum-white, with uniform luster blanketing each side. The centers exhibit impressive definition for the issue and the digits of the underdate remain distinct. A gorgeous Superb Gem that will appeal to the most discerning Morgan specialist. Desirable as a low mintage Carson City Mint Morgan dollar, the 1880-CC has a mintage of just 495,000 pieces, 131,529 examples of which were distributed through the various GSA sales of 1972 to 1980. While the VAM-4, 5 and 6 overdates were well represented in these sales, the quality of the present 1880/79-CC is superior to that of nearly every other example known. It is tied with just two other coins graded by NGC at the MS-67 level and none rank finer.
