Tracking down a really nice MS-64 Morgan dollar can be a challenge, and this is one of the most difficult to find issues. For some reason, among Morgan dollars of all dates the 1893-CC and the 1895-S are the ones that come the most heavily bagmarked. Accordingly, pieces that emerge above the MS-62 and MS-63 levels are rare. Brilliant, lustrous, and sharply struck. Only a few bags are thought to have survived the great meltings of silver dollars that occurred during the early decades of the 20th century. A scarce and desirable issue coined during the final year of coinage operations at the Carson City Mint.
