    1889-CC Dollar, MS62 Prooflike
    Key Carson City Issue, Old PCGS Holder

    1889-CC $1 MS62 Prooflike PCGS. Both prooflike and deep mirror prooflikes are surprisingly scarce for the 1889-CC, which had a limited mintage of just 350,000 silver dollars upon the resumption of coinage operations at the Carson City Mint. The mint was not fully operational until October 1889, when it produced 31,000 double eagles in addition to the small quantity of Morgan dollars.

    This is an exceptional survivor for the MS62 level, with pleasingly reflective fields and sharply struck motifs. The coin shows remarkably few abrasions or marks for the assigned grade. A thin line of pale russet-gold toning runs through the dentils on each side, surrounding brilliant centers. This attractive 1889-CC is housed in a Generation 1.2 PCGS "rattler" holder (in use from 1986 to 1989) with the Prooflike designation shown on the label. Population: 35 in 62 Prooflike, 44 finer (4/19).(Registry values: P9, N4719) (NGC ID# 2559, PCGS# 7191)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
