    Impressive 1880-CC Dollar, MS66

    1880-CC $1 MS66 PCGS. Although Mint records indicate that 591,000 Morgan dollars were produced at the Carson City Mint in 1880, not all coins were released. The Assay Commission ordered that the Nevada facility melt 96,000 '80-CC dollars because their silver fineness was not on par with government standards. As a result, the net mintage for this issue is a mere 495,000 pieces. An example of the Reverse of 1879 variety, this coin is uncommonly well defined for this often poorly impressed issue, although there is some minor softness of detail over the central highpoints. The smooth, virtually distraction-free features are impressive for a CC-mint coin, and the already impressive eye appeal benefits further from a rich endowment of frosty luster.
