1892-CC Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-66 (PCGS). Frothy mint luster blankets the devices of this premium Gem, subtly contrasting with the more reflective complexion in the fields. Fully untoned with just a dusting of original patina on the obverse. Despite a relatively generous mintage of 1,352,000 pieces, the 1892-CC is one of the more challenging Carson City Mint Morgan dollars to locate in the finer Uncirculated grades. Quantities were paid out from the San Francisco Mint during the 1920s and, especially, the 1940s and 1950s. Smaller quantities also came out of hiding in the Treasury Department Building during the same era. When it came to the great silver dollar releases of 1962 to 1964, however, few examples of the 1892-CC were still on hand. When the federal government stopped paying out silver dollars in March 1964, its inventory of remaining coins included just one 1892-CC! This is an uncommonly well preserved, premium quality Gem that ranks among the finest certified for the issue, with just 8 graded finer by PCGS.
