Toned Gem 1882-CC Morgan Dollar featured in our June 2020 Santa Ana Auction

For most collectors, the 1882-CC Morgan dollar is the
quintessential Carson City issue. Just 1.1 million coins were struck, placing
it among the lower mintages of the series and falling significantly behind the
11.1 million dollars struck in Philadelphia the same year. However, thanks to
the Treasury and GSA releases in the 1960s and 1970s, it is likely that more
than half of the original mintage survives and remains in the hands of
collectors today. While many of these are in Uncirculated condition, most are in
grades of MS-64 or lower due to bagmarks and other traces of handling or
improper storage.

We are thrilled to offer an exceptional MS-65 * (NGC) example
in lot
of our June Santa Ana Auction. Each side is vibrantly toned in rainbow
colors, with rings of gold, turquoise and crimson growing deeper toward the
borders. The underlying luster is rich and fully undisturbed, with an area of
pearly brilliance shining through at the central obverse. Combining both
superior eye appeal and surface preservation, this is an ideal example for
Carson City Mint specialists and 19th century type collectors.

This rainbow Gem 1882-CC Morgan dollar will be offered lot
of our June 2020 Santa Ana Auction, featured alongside the Francesca
Collection of US Gold Coins, Vermont coppers from the Q. David Bowers
Collection, the Dazzling Rarities Collection, and many other rarities. The sale
is currently available for bidding and viewing on our website or you may contact
