    1881-CC VAM-2 Dollar
    MS67 Deep Prooflike
    Carson City Trophy Coin

    1881-CC $1 MS67 Deep Prooflike NGC. VAM-2. This is an absolute trophy coin -- a must-have for an advanced collector putting together a set of top-pop Morgans. The 1881-CC is a plentiful Carson City issue, with half of the 296,000 coins minted held in storage until the 1970s. Ten of thousands of uncontrasted business strikes are graded, but Deep Prooflike coins total in the hundreds. This spectacular Superb Gem is one of three top-graded examples at NGC, tied with two others at PCGS.

    Aside for some lightness around the borders, where faint roller marks appear, both sides are strongly defined with complete detail over the centers. A thick covering of frost over the motifs produces stark contrast against the reflective, unabraded mirrors.(Registry values: P4, N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2547, PCGS# 97127)

    Weight: 26.73 grams
