Boldly struck in virtually all areas including the strands of hair above Liberty's ear. The motifs are frosty and the fields have a texture intermediate between satiny and prooflike. The 1890-CC is one of the issues that was hard hit by the great meltings of silver dollars that occurred during the early decades of the 20th century; only a few bags (of 1,000 pieces each) are thought to have survived, and a relatively small portion of these are Gems.
