Why add this 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS63 to your collection?

This 1890-CC Morgan Silver Dollar is in very good condition for a coin of its type. In fact, the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) has graded fewer than 2,600 coins of its type higher than this one. That may be surprising to come collectors given that 1890 yielded the highest mintage of Morgans from Carson City, but the fact that so many were released into circulation has rendered coins of this grade or higher relatively difficult to find. In fact, one estimate puts the number of extant 1890-CC Morgans is MS63 or above state at 14,000-27,000, a remarkably low number given the 2.3+ million piece mintage. The classic Morgan design features an eagle on the reverse. Like eagles on many other American coins, it holds arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. It lacks a shield, though, which is present on most other coins. Around most of the image is a wreath of laurel, which extends from just under its wings. Above the bird’s head between its upstretched wings is the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST.” On the obverse is a left side portrait of Liberty, which George T. Morgan modeled off of Anna Willess Williams. Numismatists appreciate the design for its departure from the Greek style of Liberty in favor of an American one.
