    1893-CC Silver Dollar, MS64
    Final Carson City Issue
    Rarely Offered Finer

    1893-CC $1 MS64 PCGS. Silver dollar production at Carson City in 1893 produced consistent six-figure deliveries through May of that year, but coinage operations were ceased on May 23, marking the end of Morgan dollar coinage with the coveted CC mintmark. Some coins entered circulation, and large quantities of others went into long-term storage at the Carson City Mint building until 1899, when they were transferred to San Francisco and the Treasury building in Washington D.C. In A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, fifth edition, Q. David Bowers writes that bags of Carson City dollars, which likely included 1893-CC coins, were paid out to public with little numismatic interest through the 1920s. By the time of the GSA sales of the early 1970s, only a single 1893-CC dollar remained in government vaults.

    This near-Gem survivor of the final Carson City Morgan displays radiant, untoned mint luster and remarkably few abrasions. The central sharpness is impressive considering the reputation of this issue to be deficiently struck. Eye appeal is outstanding. PCGS lists only 15 finer non-Prooflike coins (2/19).
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 12/2005), lot 2528, which realized $12,650.(Registry values: P8, N2998)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
