1891-CC Morgan Dollar

The 1891-CC Morgan Dollar had an original mintage of 1,618,000, which was higher than most other Carson City Mint issues. However, due to a lower representation with the GSA hoard, this issue is somewhat scarce.

The inventory of the General Services Administration holdings revealed a total of 5,687 examples of this coin, which represented less than one percent of the original mintage. Other Carson City issues such as the 1883-CC, 1884-CC, and 1885-CC were represented within the holdings by more than half of the original mintage, resulting in more widespread availability.

Although the 1891-CC is available, the striking quality can vary from coin to coin. Collectors should take care in locating a sharply struck example with a minimum of distracting contact marks.
