Lot Description
1889-CC $1 AU53 NGC. While many of the Carson City Morgan dollar issues from 1885 and before are readily accessible to collectors in Mint State, thanks to the Treasury and GSA releases, the 1889-CC experienced mass meltings of unissued coins. Thus, the 1889-CC has a typical distribution of grades with heavily worn or impaired pieces the norm, while better coins such as this one are decidedly in the minority. This AU example shows good remaining luster surrounding the devices and it is generally untoned except around the margins. There are only the slightest abrasions present, absolutely none of any merit or deserving mention. This should prove to be a popular and much sought-out high-grade 1889-CC dollar.
