This is a fully struck example with an uncommonly smooth cheek that is suggestive of an even higher grade. Attractive cartwheel luster on both sides is accented by a delicate golden blush near the rims, but bright silver dominates the quality surfaces. Precious few of this date and mint survive in Mint condition, and this is one of the most desirable Morgan dollar issues. The original mintage of 350,000 was greatly reduced by time and attrition. A fantastic opportunity to finally secure a highly appealing example of this prized date and mint.<br />

</strong>This 1889-CC Morgan dollar will be just right for the advanced collector who wants a truly Choice example of the rarest Carson City Morgan dollar, but who doesn't want to go well into six figures for a Gem.
