The Morgan silver dollar series is a popular starting-point
for new collectors and offers a number of key date and conditional rarities.
Shown here is an 1885-CC Morgan dollar, from the smallest Carson City mintage for
the series. There were only 228,000 coins produced in Carson City, Nevada in
1885, with an estimated 36,000 surviving today. Due to a higher survival rate, the
1885-CC is not as rare as some other Carson City issues, including the 1889-CC
and 1893-CC. Among Carson City Morgan dollars, the 1885 falls in the middle of
the pack when we focus on scarcity. When it is found graded NGC MS-67 DPL, it
becomes very rare. At PCGS, there are only two coins that are graded MS-67 DMPL. At NGC, the present coin is the
sole finest. This top-pop 1885-CC Morgan Dollar is part of Stack's Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the ANA, taking place August 17-20, 2021.
