    1889-CC Morgan Dollar, MS62
    Elusive Prooflike Example

    1889-CC $1 MS62 Prooflike NGC. The Carson City Mint was used as a storage and assay office from 1886 through 1888, but the facility was reactivated for coinage operations in 1889. Unfortunately, the physical plant had run down during the long layoff and it was necessary to retool and repair the buildings, as well as hire and train new staff, before normal operations could commence. The Mint was only ready to resume coin production on October 10. As a result, a meager mintage of 350,000 Morgan dollars was produced before the end of the year. Today, the 1889-CC is the most elusive Carson City Morgan dollar.

    Examples with prooflike surfaces are not unusual for most Carson City mintages, but he 1889-CC is seldom seen with deeply reflective fields and frosty devices. This attractive MS62 example is an exception, with sharply detailed design elements and brilliant prooflike fields that show the expected number of minor contact marks for the grade. Overall visual appeal is outstanding. Census: 25 in 62 (1 in 62+) Prooflike, 48 finer (10/19).(Registry values: P9, N4719) (NGC ID# 2559, PCGS# 7191)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
