1889-CC Silver Dollar - 1889-CC Morgan $1 NGC VG10 CAC. Here is an opportunity to fill one of those “impossible” holes in your Morgan Dollar collection. This circulated 1889-CC Morgan Dollar fits the bill. The coin is a mixture of light and dark gray with the light devices standing out against a darker background. Liberty’s hair and the eagle’s breast are outlined. More than half of the wing feathers show detail, almost enough for a grade higher. The surfaces are original and clean for the grade with no notable abrasions or other distractions. The CAC sticker tells us that the coin is of premium quality and fully deserves the grade given.
George T. Morgan designed the Morgan silver dollar, which was issued every year from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921. Hundreds of millions of Morgan silver dollars were saved in bags of 1,000 each, in bank vaults because the federal government created artificial demand for them to satisfy the Western silver interests. Some were melted in 1918, but large quantities remained in bank vaults and were later bought by investors and collectors. Because many millions of Morgan silver dollars exist today in the hands of the public, it has become the most widely collected coin of its era.
Morgan’s design for the dollar shows a close head of Liberty in profile facing left. She wears a headband inscribed LIBERTY. In her hair are cotton, corn, wheat, and tobacco. She wears a modified Phrygian cap and is surrounded with the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM, thirteen stars (seven left and six right), and the date. The reverse shows an eagle with wings raised looking left. In its talons are arrows and olive branch, symbols of preparedness and peace. A wreath is below and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is above. Except for the eagle’s wing tips, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and ONE DOLLAR circumscribe the design. The mintmark is below the wreath and above the denomination.
In its population report, as of August 2013, CAC has confirmed 18 1889-CC Morgan Dollars at the VG10 grade level.
