    1881-CC GSA Dollar, MS67
    Toned Reverse, Frosty Luster

    1881-CC $1 GSA MS67 PCGS. VAM-4. The GSA sales of the 1970s made millions of silver dollars from long-sealed government vaults available to numismatists. Many Carson City issues, including the 1881-CC, were represented in quantity. Today, this issue is plentiful through MS66 and accessible in MS67 for a price. However, collectors assembling a collection of coins in original GSA holders will encounter a challenge. PCGS reports only three GSA coins in MS67 that remain in their original hard plastic holders from the 1970s. One of these is offered here. It is mostly brilliant, frosty, and beautifully preserved. Close study reveals only a couple of faint grazes in the left obverse field and on Liberty's cheek. The reverse displays a swath of multicolor toning across the left half of the coin, which was acquired over the course of decades of storage in canvas Mint bags. The eye appeal of this coin is outstanding, and it features all of the attributes that are so widely admired on GSA Carson City Morgans. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (8/20).
