1889-CC Morgan Silver Dollar. AU-55+ (PCGS). CAC. A handsome example of this key date in the Carson City Mint Morgan dollar series. Both sides of this coin retain plenty of lively mint luster, the surfaces predominantly satin to softly frosted in texture. Essentially brilliant, we note only faint wisps of iridescent gold and russet toning around the peripheries. Boldly to sharply defined overall. Although other CC-Mint silver dollars have lower mintages (the 1881-CC and 1885-CC, for example), the title of rarest Carson City Mint Morgan dollar has long been held by the 1889-CC. Of the 350,000 pieces struck, only small quantities emerged from government holdings during the first half of the 20th century, mostly from storage in the San Francisco Mint and/or Treasury stock. Since few 1889-CC dollars seem to have entered circulation at or near the time of issue, both worn and Mint State survivors are elusive. A find at all levels of preservation, this premium quality AU-55+ will certainly draw plenty of attention from both Carson City Mint and Morgan dollar enthusiasts.
