1878-CC Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS64
A First-Year Morgan from the Heart of the Wild West!
Though initial runs of the brand new Morgan Silver Dollar series were minted in Philadelphia, 1878 also saw a delivery of dies to the Carson City mint. Of course, the mint of the Wild West immediately took up the charge. It was a fitting coin for the mint, as a great deal of silver for this series came from the state's famous Comstock Lode, located in nearby Virginia City, Nevada. Contrary to its location, the Carson City Mint would only produce 2% of the entire Morgan mintage, with coins produced in just 13 years out of the total 28 the series was struck. That, combined with its special first-year mintage, makes this 1878 Carson City Morgan Silver Dollar a must-have.
The obverse of the coin was designed by George T. Morgan, 7th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. It depicts a bust of Lady Liberty facing left, with stars circling her head. Also inscribed on the obverse are the words "LIBERTY," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the date 1878. The reverse of the coin features an American bald eagle with outstretched wings, clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons. Its inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR," and an archaic-lettered "IN GOD WE TRUST" along with the mint mark "CC" to indicate your Morgan was struck at the Carson City Mint. With an impressive grade of MS64 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), your coin is in exceptional condition -- uncirculated with barely noticeable marks. A great coin from the Old West and a great start to your collection – that is, if you act quickly. Quantities are limited, so secure yours today!
