Noteworthy Choice 1889-CC Silver Dollar

1889-CC $1 MS64 PCGS. Splashes of pale apricot color congregate along the borders, while the centers are generally toned with pearl-gray hues. The strike is above average although not needle-sharp; only the hair directly above the ear is not boldly brought up. The satiny surfaces are impressively undisturbed. A couple of tiny marks near the arrowheads do not appear to limit the grade, and are mentioned primarily as a pedigree marker for future auction appearances.
Although the low mintage for the 1889-CC (350,000 pieces) is above that of the 1881-CC and 1885-CC issues, the latter two dates appeared in surprising quantity in the GSA hoard that was dispersed during the 1970s. Only a single 1889-CC Dollar emerged from the GSA sales. The 1889-CC is the key to a collection of Carson City Morgan Dollars. Most survivors are well circulated, and although sliders are always available for a price, Uncirculated examples are rare and under tremendous pressure from specialists of this widely held series. Population: 20 in 64, 2 finer (2/04).(#7190) (Registry values: P9, N7079) (NGC ID# 2559, PCGS# 7190)
