Lot Description
1893-CC $1 MS64 PCGS. The return of Grover Cleveland to the Presidency was an ill omen for the Carson City Mint, as his 1885 arrival in the White House had closed the coining facility in 1885 and only Benjamin Harrison's victory in the 1888 election had revived its fortunes. Only a couple of months into 1893, the Carson City branch shut down again, this time for good. This faintly gold-tinged near-Gem from that final year of production has ample cartwheel luster with a bright silver base. While the 1893-CC dollar remains available for a price in MS64, anything finer is a condition rarity. PCGS has graded only 12 examples as MS65 or finer (1/14).
