    Description

    Uncirculated 1889-CC Morgan Dollar

    1889-CC $1 MS61 ANACS. The 1889-CC is widely known as the rarest of all Carson City dollars. Only 350,000 pieces were produced and there is a pronounced lack of survivors in AU and better grades. This piece is very sharply struck throughout and each side shows light golden-brown toning. A few small abrasions are seen, most notably one on the eagle's breast, but the coin seems to derive its grade from a general lackluster appearance more than from abrasions.
    From the James L. Moore Collection.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2559, PCGS# 7190)
