Lot Description
1889-CC $1 MS63 NGC. The 1889-CC comes from a sparse mintage of 350,000 pieces, and is an important key in the Morgan dollar series. Among Carson City issues, it is the most elusive. While a number of certified examples exist through MS62, the always-high demand for the issue results in them being acquired rather quickly. The issue is scarce in MS63 and rare any finer. Whispers of reddish-gold cling to the margins of this lustrous Select specimen. While the strike on the '89-CC is often weak, this piece displays sharp definition on the design elements, including the hair over Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers. A handful of scattered marks limits the grade. Census: 55 in 63, 47 finer (11/11).
