Lot Description
1879-CC $1 MS64 Deep Mirror Prooflike NGC. This is a Clear Mintmark example. The 1879-CC is the second rarest of all Carson City Morgans (David Bowers, 2007). NGC and PCGS combined have certified only 30 Deep Mirror Prooflike examples, and a mere three coins finer. Excellent field-motif contrast is apparent on both sides of this untoned near-Gem specimen. The frosted design features are well impressed, including good detail in the hair above the ear and the breast feathers. A few minute handling marks preclude Gem status. Census: 11 in 64 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 1 finer (11/11).
