Lot Description
1891-CC $1 MS66 PCGS. VAM-3. The Spitting Eagle variety gets its name from the small die chip near the eagle's beak. The variety is plentiful but still popular. The 1891-CC issue is relatively plentiful in lower grades through MS65, but Gem or finer coins are elusive. This piece has above-average detail with weakness in the hair strands over Liberty's ear, but the central reverse breast feathers are crisp. This lovely Premium Gem is full brilliant with subtle gold toning on each side. Minimal surface marks are trivial and consistent with the grade. Here is an excellent opportunity for the advanced collector. Population: 25 in 66, 1 finer (11/10). From The Shrike Set - The Karschner Collection of Morgan Dollars.
