Hi Guys, just wanted to share a rare and lucky find I stumbled upon. Unfortunately a family member pass away recently, and they had a jar of coins, which was handed to me, with the usual pennies and what not. But among them, this rare gem popped up. Didn't know much about it till I did a bit of research, now the Silver dollars from back then are plenty apparently, what makes this one rare is the year, and the Mint it was produced from, if you look below the eagle (and just above ONE DOLLAR), you can see the small letter CC. This means it was pressed a the Carson City Mint. How on earth this coin made its way to Australia, and what stories it has to tell, who knows. It was in the family for generations. Here is some info I digged up: Before the end of the year, a total of 350,000 of the 1889-CC Morgan Silver Dollar were produced. Numismatic scholars have concluded that perhaps 250,000 to 325,000 of the 1889-CC dollars were melted, making this date one of the scarcest in the entire Morgan Silver Dollar series. The 1889-CC Morgan Silver Dollar has a couple of angles that make it a collector’s favorite. First, it is a rare key date in what is absolutely one of the most popular type coins in American numismatics, the Morgan Dollar. Second, all coins of the Carson City Mint are associated with the “Wild West” aura, and carry added weight with collectors. A quick check of long term upwardly price trends for the 1889-CC attests to its stellar reputation.
