1893-CC Morgan Dollar

The 1893-CC Morgan Dollar is noted for being the last of the Carson City silver dollars, completing a popular segment of the broader series. The issue had a mintage of 677,000, and although some bag quantities were paid out over the years, only a single example was found within the inventory of the GSA hoard. The famous Redfield hoard contained a quantity of coins, but there were impaired by abrasions.

This issue is known for being extensively bag marked and sometimes being poorly struck. The appearance of well struck and minimally marked examples in mint state grades of MS63 or higher is extremely infrequent, making these examples the pursuit of many collectors. Some examples graded MS65 have sold for nearly $50,000 at auction.

Proof like and deep mirror proof like examples are infrequent, and these are concentrated in the lower mint state grades due to excessive bag marks.
