    1889-CC Morgan Dollar, MS63
    Always Challenging Branch Mint Issue

    1889-CC $1 MS63 NGC. The low 350,000-piece mintage was struck late in 1889, after the Carson City Mint returned to coinage operations after a three-year lull. Unlike other CC Morgan dollars, the 1889-CC was virtually absent from the GSA sales, and no great hoards have come forward in the past several decades. This is a brilliant and sharply struck example, with a few tiny bagmarks and contacts. Liberty's cheek is smooth and free of any meaningful abrasions. Many collectors believe MS63 is the optimal collecting grade for an 1889-CC such as this lustrous coin. Eye appeal alone suggests an even finer grade. NGC has certified only about four dozen finer examples (2/21).
