1880-CC Morgan Silver Dollar BU GSA Holder
An Elusive Carson City Morgan -- Now Within Your Grasp!
For collectors assembling a complete Morgan Silver Dollar set, the 1880 Carson City Morgan has been historically hard to find. Fewer than 600,000 were minted that year, compared to the over 26,000,000 produced collectively by the Philadelphia, San Francisco and New Orleans mints.
Collectors hold a place in their hearts for silver dollars from Carson City. After all, it was the mint closest to the famed Comstock Lode -- the source for nearly all the silver used to strike the titular dollars. Plus, the craftsmen at the Carson City Mint were noted for their attention to detail, producing arguably the best quality coins of any mint.
So, when a previously-ignored stash of Carson City silver dollars was discovered in the U.S. Treasury's vaults, collectors jumped at the chance to make them their own! The General Services Administration (GSA) held several sales of these coins in the 1970s, packaging them in special acrylic holders -- the forefather to today's "slabbed" coins. Over the years, most of these silver dollars were broken out of the holders, leaving only a limited number of original issues left intact.
Good news, though -- this1880 Carson City Morgan is still in it its original GSA holder and in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition! It's a perfect opportunity to bring this true survivor to your collection. Don't wait any longer -- order your 1880 Carson City GSA Morgan Silver Dollar today!
