    1879-CC Morgan Dollar, MS65+
    Frosty Original Mint Luster
    Few Finer Examples Known

    1879-CC $1 MS65+ PCGS Secure. The 1879-CC is widely considered to be the scarcest Carson City Morgan after the 1889-CC. Slightly more than 4,000 examples were distributed through the GSA sales of the 1970s, which is the source of a large portion of the Uncirculated survivors known today, but many were abraded from decades of storage in sealed mint bags. Gem-quality 1879-CC dollars are scarce. At PCGS, only six finer pieces are reported, all non-Prooflike pieces (10/18). This Plus-graded Gem displays untoned, frosty mint luster and glistens when rotated beneath a light. Liberty's cheek is clean, and only a few trivial luster grazes are visible in the fields beneath a loupe. Eye appeal is outstanding.(Registry values: P7, N4719)
