Lot 1068
1893-CC $1 MS63 PCGS
Elected to a second, nonconsecutive term in 1892, President Grover Cleveland was an ardent opponent of the free coinage of silver. Once Cleveland entered office in 1893, the effects of his policy started to take effect almost immediately. For one thing, Morgan dollar production remained limited at all coinage facilities through 1895, the Philadelphia Mint actually refraining from delivering business strikes that year (at least that is how one theory regarding the '95-P Morgan goes). Additionally, the Carson City Mint would strike its last coins of all denominations in 1893, the fabled frontier-era institution then confining its activities to that of an assay office and refinery.

As the final CC-mint delivery in the Morgan dollar series, the 1893-CC has long been popular with collectors. This can, however, be a difficult issue to collect, as survivors are conditionally challenging and frequently offered with poor central striking detail. This Select specimen is no exception with some notable softness at the central regions of each side. Luster quality is good, both sides displaying softly frosted mint bloom. The surfaces are toned in somewhat mottled russet hues, particularly at the peripheries, and they are equally free of all but a few well-scattered abrasions that are not out of context with the assigned grade. Definitely worthy of serious bidder consideration. (PCGS 7222)
