    1878-CC Morgan Dollar, MS66+
    Semiprooflike, Conditionally Scarce

    1878-CC $1 MS66+ PCGS. VAM-22. A lesser VAM variety for the 1878-CC Morgan, identified by die chips within the C's of the mintmark and a couple of obscure die lines on the obverse. The Carson City Mint was accustomed to striking large quantities of silver dollars during the mid-1870s with Trade dollar production, but coinage climbed significantly higher under the dictates of the Bland-Allison Act of 1878 that created the Morgan dollar. The 1878-CC Morgan comes from a mintage of more than 2.2 million coins. This issue is available today in nearly any grade desired short of MS66, where it is scarce in comparison to the demand, and in MS67, where it is a major condition rarity.

    This Plus-graded Premium Gem offers sharp detail and semiprooflike fields. The blazing silver surfaces show no toning and boast a clean cheek and fields. PCGS has seen only six finer submissions (6/17).(Registry values: P4, N2998) (NGC ID# 253M, PCGS# 7080)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
