1889-CC $1
Frosty, lustrous pale champagne surfaces with a bold strike for the date and excellent eye appeal. A pleasing example of one of the most important key dates in the Morgan dollar series, certainly far and away the most desirable Carson City issue of the design type. Just 350,000 examples were struck, not the lowest mintage figure for a Carson City Mint Morgan - that honor goes to the 1885-CC issue - but still far and away the most important key date from that mint. The strike here is far superior to that typically seen, with bold, fully delineated hairlines above Liberty's ear, and with full breast feathers on the reverse eagle. This date is often found with reflective prooflike surfaces, though here evenly frosted surfaces beckon to potential bidders. Ex: Stack's Auction, (11/1959), lot 238. (PCGS 7190) Brilliant Uncirculated
