Lot Description
1878-CC $1 MS66 PCGS. The 1878-CC dollar is very popular among Morgan dollar collectors due to it being the first-year-of-issue and the CC mintmark. This Premium Gem displays intense luster emanating from its silver-gray surfaces. The design elements are sharply struck, including the hair over Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers. In this regard, Miller (1982) writes that this is "one of the most consistently well struck Morgan dollars." A few light marks are in concert with the grade designation.
