Silver Dollar, 1889-CC, PCGS MS 63 DMPL (Deep Mirror Prooflike) CAC
A well struck example, fully white with deep and flashy fields, the devices are frosty and contrast well. As with all deeply prooflike specimens, bagmarks are accentuated by the reflective nature of the fields. On this example there are only two marks of note, one in front of, and the other behind the head of Liberty. In October 1889 the Carson City mint resumed production, having previously ceased operations in 1885. Although it does not have the lowest mintage, 350,000 were struck, the 1889-CC is nevertheless the rarest of all Carson City dollars; most appear to have entered circulation, and only one was found in the great GSA hoard of the mid-20th century. It has long been considered a key to the series, especially in higher grades of preservation. An attractive example, in the top tier of the designation. Of similar grade to the Bodway example.
