1891-CC MORGAN SILVER DOLLARPCGS MS63In 1891, the Carson City Mint struck 1,618,000 Morgan Silver Dollars. Unlike the Carson City dollars of the 1880's, Hundreds of thousands of 1891-CC dollars were put into circulation in the late nineteenth century. Others were sold in bag quantity until the 1950's. This date was not well-represented in the GSA hoard, however, and because of that, mint state examples are not nearly as common as earlier Carson City issues. The 1891-CC becomes scarce in higher grades. This beautiful PCGS MS63 example would be a fine addition to any collection.
