Although the 1890-CC Morgan Dollar (Buy on eBay) had the highest mintage of any issue of the series from the Carson City Mint, the coins are not as common as might be expected. As with many other coins in the series, the rarity is determined by the extent of melting and distribution from the Treasury or the GSA Morgan Dollar Hoard in later decades.
The GSA inventory showed only 3,949 of the 1890-CC Morgan Dollars in inventory. Other Carson City issues with lower mintages had significantly higher numbers of coins in inventory.
