    1889-CC Dollar, AU58+
    Keystone Issue in the Series

    1889-CC $1 AU58+ PCGS. Production of coinage resumed at the Carson City Mint in 1889 after a three-year hiatus. The facility used five sets of dies to strike 100,000 Morgan dollars in October, another 100,000 coins in November, and the final batch of 150,000 pieces in December. Eventually, 250,000 to 325,000 coins were melted for reasons unknown. After the Treasury release in the early 1960s failed to yield any significant quantity of 1889-CC dollars, the issue was solidified as one of the true rarities in the series.

    This near-Mint representative falls just half a point short of an Uncirculated designation, and the difference is nearly imperceptible. The entirely brilliant surfaces are sharply detailed and only lightly abraded on each side.
