Lot Description
1889-CC $1 MS61 NGC. The 1889-CC, with a mintage of just 350,000 pieces, is an important key date in the Morgan dollar series and the most elusive among Carson City issues. It is safe to say that, because of collector demand, the issue is rare in all grades. The vast majority of 1889-CC dollars that come on the market show considerable wear. More specifically, certified population figures indicate that most specimens fall into the VG to XF levels of preservation. Nevertheless, even in circulated grades, the 1889-CC is elusive. This Uncirculated example has thin, satiny mint luster and shows even, pale golden toning over each side. The strike details are just a bit soft in the centers, and there are no distracting abrasions on either side.
