1889-CC Morgan Dollar. Improperly cleaned. Our grade is MS63. Well struck with light hairlines. A very nice looking coin. Within the reach of serious Morgan dollar collectors, this is the rarest Carson City Mint issue. The 1889-CC was produced to the tune of just 350,000 pieces. When the mint (which had closed in 1885) did not reopen until mid-year 1889, there was only six months of production possible. Odd though it be, about half of the Mint States in collectors' hands are either prooflikes or deep mirror in finish. A very choice coin despite the light cleaning, the devices are boldly revealed between the luster on the relief surrounded in the satin white of the fields. Silvery brilliance throughout; a basically as sharp as any from a bank bag, and one that presents itself as very attractive. The few stray marks are minor enough that there isn't one we can single out as noteworthy (PCGS # 7190) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $15,000
