About the Coin

The 1889-CC Morgan dollar is one of the most sought after key dates among business strikes in the Morgan dollar series. Among the Carson City branch mint issues, this is the key date.

Those of you who know me, know I love gun-metal gray toning on old silver coins. The 1889-CC Morgan dollar in The Arlington Collection has gorgeous gun-metal gray original toning. You will see similar toning on my 1795 Flowing Hair half dollar, 1797 Draped Bust dollar, and 1893-S Morgan dollar.
