Why add the 1885-CC Morgan Silver Dollar NGC MS65 to your collection?

This outstanding 1885-CC Morgan Silver Dollar was graded Mint State 65 (MS65) level by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The legendary Carson City branch of the U.S. Mint struck this coin on a .900 fine silver planchet containing .7734 oz. of silver content. This issue has a small mintage of 228,000 coins. Carson City issues are wildly popular with collectors.

Iconic George T. Morgan Design

The obverse of the coin features the timeless image of the American Ideal, the Goddess Liberty based on the profile of Anna Williams, a Philadelphia teacher. She is shown with a small inscribed coronet. The reverse of the coin features a bald eagle encircled by a laurel wreath. The design was the first major assignment at the U.S. Mint for George T. Morgan, an engraver who emigrated from England. Mr. Morgan later rose to the post of Chief Engraver of the US Mint and was the seventh person who filled that prestigious office.

Carson City MS65 silver dollar

MS65 graded coins are well struck, uncirculated examples that will have stunning mint luster and luminous, original surfaces. There may be slight marks in non-focal areas of the design but overall coins at this level have an excellent appearance. MS65 examples are solidly collectible and see strong demand from Numismatists.
