1874-CC T$1 MS64 NGC....
Lustrous 1874-CC Trade Dollar, MS641874-CC T$1 MS64 NGC. While the Carson City Mint struck Seated dollars in only minimal quantities, its production of Trade dollars was substantially higher. The mintage of the 1874-CC was 1,373,200 pieces, a record production at that time for the facility. However, the 1874-CC is much scarcer than its mintage suggests, since many pieces were exported, chopmarked, and melted. In Mint State, the 1874-CC is about as rare as the more heralded 1889-CC Morgan silver dollar. Lower demand explains its more modest price when compared to the 1889-CC. A lightly toned, problem-free, and fully lustrous piece, such as the present near-Gem, is highly desirable. Moderate strike softness is noted on the right (facing) claw and on Liberty's hair, but the balance of the devices are boldly defined. Census: 18 in 64, 4 finer (2/09).
Ex: Heritage (8/2006), lot 5331.
