Lot Description
1880-CC $1 MS67 PCGS Secure. Ex: Bella. Several hundred thousand examples survived in the GSA holdings from the mintage of 591,000 1880-CC Morgan dollars. This example is nonetheless tied for numerically finest at PCGS (there is one MS67+) with a couple of dozen others, and there are none finer in Prooflike or Deep Mirror designations. The frosty silver-white surfaces show no trace of other color, and the parallel planchet striations or "roller marks" through the center of each side are a commonplace on this issue. A loupe reveals only the most insignificant evidence of contact. Population: 28 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (6/12).
