1885 Carson City Morgan Dollar
Even when the Carson City branch of the United States Mint was in operation in the late 1800s, Morgan dollars with the famous "CC" mintmark were scarce. This happened for a variety of reasons, the most significant were low mintage figures and storage for later use by the government. Today, Carson City Morgans are some of the most sought after coins of the collector market. The initial mintage of this coin was a mere 228,000. Most issues of the Morgan dollar had mintage figures of several million pieces. A variety of mint state examples have been graded and are known of, but this coin can be difficult to find on the market in general.
