Lot Description
1880-CC $1 8 Over Low 7 MS67 NGC. VAM-6. A Top 100 Variety. This third reverse variety shows die filling within the interior spaces of the first 8, and clear evidence of a 7 beneath the second 8. The reverse has tiny die artifacts inside each C of the mintmark. Numerous overdate varieties of the 1880-CC Morgan dollars are known, having varying degrees of rarity. Both sides of this highly lustrous Morgan dollar are untoned with brilliant, frosty mint luster. The strike is bold with strong hair definition over Liberty's ear. A few tiny luster breaks and trivial marks are consistent with the grade of this splendid Superb Gem. There have not been any 1880-CC dollars certified in MS67 with the VAM-6 designation on the insert. Among all 1880-CC dollars only 15 others have been graded MS67 and none are finer (1/12).
