1889 CC Carson City Mint $1 Morgan Silver Dollar (VG) VERY RARE
This coin has a beautiful naturally aged tone to it. It does have some light wear as can be seen from the pictures. I believe it fits at or slightly above a Very Good 10 grade. The Carson City Morgan Silver Dollars were struck from 1878 using the Silver from the Comstock Lode. The city from Nevada state had a very small population back then and the production of the Silver dollars put a serious financial strain in the small city.
The production was stopped for three years and commenced production again in the second half of 1889. Like the 1893-S, the 1889-CC Morgan dollar is another coin that is purely scarce, though perhaps more numerous than the latter counterpart. 350,000 examples were struck but not all survive as many 1889 Morgan Dollars were melted, and many others were lost to the hands of time.
