Why add the 1882-CC Morgan Silver Dollar NGC MS65 to your collection?

This Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded Mint State 65 (MS65) 1882-CC Morgan Silver Dollar would be a great example of the type to add to any collection. The U.S. Mint at Carson City, Nevada was located near the famous Comstock Lode Silver Mine. Through political influence the owners of the mine the Bland-Allison Act passed. This act required the U.S. Government to purchase vast amounts of silver on a monthly basis which was then minted into silver dollars and some smaller denomination coins. The mintage of this classic issue is 1,133,000. U.S. Silver dollars contain .7734 oz. of actual silver weight struck on a 90% pure planchet.

Classic Silver Dollar design

US Mint Engraver Assistant George T. Morgan's first assignment for the Mint was the design for this "new" silver dollar. The obverse features the portrait of Lady Liberty wearing a small inscribed crown. The reverse features a Bald Eagle surrounded by a laurel wreath.

Popular MS65 Carson City Mint issue

MS65 coins are well-struck, fully uncirculated coins. They have bright luster and original surfaces. "CC" coins of all denominations--but especially Morgan Dollars--are popular with collectors. Coins struck at the Carson City Mint are well-known as lower-mintage and scarcer examples. They are especially desirable in higher, uncirculated grades like this one.

There is nothing more appealing to a collector than a Carson City Minted Morgan Silver Dollar. Order your NGC graded MS65 example of the 1882-CC Morgan from ModernCoinMart today.
