Silver Dollar, 1893-CC, PCGS MS 65
A remarkable example of the last Carson City mint emission of silver dollars. The issue is notorious for the poor quality of strike, however on this example it is superb, with the hair fully delineated above Liberty’s ear, and the eagle’s chest feathers robust. The number of surface marks are few, and none are distracting, nor useful as identifiers. The coin is fully and brilliantly white, with no hint of toning; the surfaces are hard, with the obverse possessing faintly prooflike characteristics, while the reverse is frosty with cartwheel coruscation. The mint mark is tilted right and there is a die chip between the loops of the 3 (VAM 2); die cracks are forming in the legends of both sides, and the area to the right of the eagle’s wing shows evidence of multiple die clashes. This appears to be one of the later state strikes which are said to be among the last Carson City silver dollars produced.

THE PCGS TOUR OF THE "WORLD'S FINEST MORGAN DOLLARS" EXHIBITION EXAMPLE.

As observed by Guth,“The typical 1893-CC Dollar shows excessive bagmarks and sometimes comes weakly struck in the centers, as evidenced by flat hair over Liberty's ear and flat feathers on the eagle's breast. Gem 1893-CC Dollars are very rare, more so than the 1879-CC and 1889-CC.…” This example is clearly an exception to the comments on abrasion and striking, and is of the highest quality. At the time it was certified it was, if not the finest known, one of the top three. It was part of the astonishing William Spears Collection of Carson City Morgan dollars, of which every specimen was included in the PCGS “World’s Finest Morgan Dollars” Tour; a rare accolade, considering the other great collectors who loaned their coins. The insert bears the “PCGS Tour” provenance. Clearly, one of the finest known specimens, and with splendid provenance.

Certificate number: 6271768 (Generation 3 holder). The PCGS census records grading examples some 8,000 times, of which fourteen have been deemed of comparable grade, and a single MS 66 finer. The NGC site records a similar proportion of the 4,000 they have certified, and again a single MS 66 is the finest. As noted above, at the time this example was certified it was the single finest known; joined prior to October 1992 by two additional examples. (02-18)
