Lot Description
1879-CC $1 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The survival of the various Carson City Morgan dollar issues has far more to do with where they spent their time rather than their original mintages. Under more adverse circumstances the 1885-CC dollar (mintage 228,000 pieces) would be considered a great rarity, while the 1879-CC (mintage 756,000 pieces) would be more accessible. As it is, the 1879-CC dollar is challenging in most Mint State grades and scarce in Gem and above. This MS64+ example offers a good "look" for its date, silver overall with well-defined, lightly frosted devices and just a hint of patina set against the pale gray of the fields.
