Lot Description
1889-CC $1 MS63+ PCGS. CAC. The 1889-CC Morgan dollar is the most elusive Carson City issue of the series, from a low mintage of 350,000 pieces.

This high-end Select specimen is sharply struck, with fine detail present on all design elements. Even usually weak areas, like the hair above the ears, show intricate definition. The surfaces are completely brilliant and display vibrant mint luster on both sides. In addition, all surfaces are lightly abraded for the grade. From The Shrike Set - The Karschner Collection of Morgan Dollars.
