Lot Description
1879-CC $1 MS65 PCGS. This high-end Gem survivor looks like two completely different coins between its sides. The obverse is delicately frosted on the portrait with swirling cartwheel luster around, the whole faintly toned over in pale gray. The reverse, by contrast, has bold patina, primarily gold-to-orange with striking blue and violet elements enhancing the left and upper borders. The strike is decent for the date, though not complete. The 1879-CC Morgan dollar was underrepresented in 20th century government holdings relative to its peers and high-grade survivors are elusive today. Population: 97 in 65 (1 in 65+), 2 finer (1/13).
