1883-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Uncirculated GSA
Mother Lode of Morgans from the Mother Lode Mint
In 1962, the United States Treasury found a mother lode of mint-fresh bags of Morgan Silver Dollars from the fabled Carson City Mint. In order to make these spectacular Carson City Morgans available to all Americans, the General Services Administration (GSA) held a series of sales between 1972 and 1980.
Each coin struck from Comstock Lode silver was sealed into a large black GSA holder. Today, many collectors believe these holders were the inspiration for today’s “slab.” Over the years, most of these GSA CC Morgans have been removed from their original holders. After a great effort, we’ve located a small number of GSA Carson City Morgans, including this 1883-CC Morgan in Uncirculated condition.
Don’t miss your chance to own this historic Silver Dollar “Time Capsule.”
- COINS COME HOUSED IN FAMOUS GSA HOLDER – All of the Morgan Silver Dollars sold by the General Services Administration (GSA) came housed in a distinctive black holder. While those holders have served as the inspiration for today’s coin “slabs,” many of the Morgans that were part of the original sales have been removed, making those still in their holders that much more scarce and hard to find.
- KEY MINT MARK AND DATE – Morgan Silver Dollars from the Carson City Mint are the epitome of America’s Wild West. Struck from silver mined from the famous Comstock Lode, coins like these jingled in the pockets of sheriffs, outlaws, cattle barons and gamblers as they tamed the Wild West.
- HIGH SILVER CONTENT – Each coin is struck in an ounce of 90% fine silver.
- UNCIRCULATED CONDITION – ALL of the coins in the GSA sales were from bags of Morgan Silver Dollars the U.S. Treasury discovered had been stored in its vaults decades earlier and seemingly forgotten. Their discovery led to a series of sales between 1972 and 1980.
The Carson City Mint was closest to the source of the silver being used to strike Morgans: The Comstock Lode in Nevada. The quality of the coins struck there are usually the best of all. "CC" Morgans feature crisp strikes and frosty surfaces and are among the most desirable of all Morgans. And those in GSA holders like these beauties are among the most unique in the entire history of Morgan Silver Dollars!
