Why add the 1880-CC Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS65 to your collection?

Professional Coin Grading Service experts graded this 1880-CC Morgan Silver Dollar at the stunning Mint State 65 (MS65) level. Current population figures at PCGS show 2703 specimens in this grade. The famous Carson City Mint struck silver coinage that resulted from the Bland-Allison Act of 1878. This act was orchestrated by powerful mining interests in the West who, after the discovery of the famed Comstock Lode some years earlier, needed a customer with deep pockets to buy silver that was flooding the international markets. This customer was the U.S. Government. Some of these coins were circulated primarily in the Western United States while the vast majority of them were stored in vaults of banks and the U.S. Treasury and later sold to collectors in the sixties and seventies.

Beloved Coinage Design

The obverse design depicts Liberty, as modeled by Philadelphia teacher Anna Willis Williams. The designer George T. Morgan regarded her profile as the most perfect he had seen in England or America. The reverse of the coin features the bald eagle, as required by U.S. coinage law on denominations larger than the dime.

Solidly Collectible MS65 example

MS65 is a high collector grade that exhibits original surfaces and lack any significant detracting marks or scuffs. Overall coins in this grade are very attractive and high-quality examples that experience significant collector demand.
