    1890-CC 'Tail Bar' Dollar, MS64+ Prooflike
    VAM-4, Important Carson City Variety

    1890-CC $1 Tail Bar, VAM-4, MS64+ Prooflike PCGS. CAC. A Top 100 Variety. The rodlike die gouge beneath the eagle's tail is clearly visible to the naked eye, making the Tail Bar variety one of the most memorable of all Morgan dollar VAMs. The present example offers tremendous eye appeal, with mirrored prooflike surfaces on both sides and subtle coloration that includes iridescence in the fields and turquoise with violet accents throughout Liberty's hair strands. The strike is extremely sharp throughout with a clean cheek on Liberty and only a few light field marks. This exact coin is the finest-listed Tail Bar at PCGS in prooflike format by virtue of the Plus designation. Population: 8 in 64 (1 in 64+) Prooflike, 0 finer (9/15).(Registry values: P6)

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 87199)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
