1882-1884-CC Morgan Silver Dollar 3-pc Set NGC MS65 GSA Moy Signed Labels
“CC” Morgans in Original GSA Holders with NGC Certified Wraps Signed by Edmund Moy!
There’s no doubt about it, the U.S. Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most heavily collected coins in the world. With legions of fans not only in America but in Europe, the Middle East and Japan all captivated by its history and silver purity, it’s no wonder it’s called the King of Coins! And among the royalty that is the Morgan Silver Dollar, one mint mark stands above the rest – the “CC” of the Carson City Mint.
No U.S. Branch Mint has a greater connection to the Morgan Silver Dollar than Carson City. After all, the Carson City Mint was established specifically to mint the vast quantity of silver being mined from the Comstock Lode, the greatest source of silver ever discovered in the United States! Rather than haul all the silver east to the Philadelphia Mint or transport it across the mountains to the San Francisco Mint on the West Coast, the Carson City Mint was established near the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In 1878, the Bland-Allison called for the minting of a new dollar coin made from the vast reservoirs of silver coming from the Comstock Lode. Named for its designer, George T. Morgan, this new coin was THE coin of the Wild West where coins were preferred to paper currency – and the Carson City Mint was the only mint located smack in the middle of the rip-roarin’ West where cowboys, gunfighters, gamblers and ranchers lived by their own set of rules.
While millions of Morgans were struck during the coin’s 28-year history, some of the most coveted are the CC Morgans. That’s because the Carson City Mint struck the Morgan Silver Dollar for just 13 years from 1878-1885 and again from 1889-1893. Unfortunately for today’s collectors, million of Morgans were melted thanks to the Pittman Act of 1918. A generation later, the Silver Act of 1942 melted more Morgans. Many more fell victim to the melting pots in the early 1980s when the price of silver shot up to $50 an ounce. So, while millions of Morgans were struck from 1878 through 1921, massive silver meltings and the ravages of time have taken their toll. Today coin experts believe that only 15% of all Morgans ever struck remain in existence. And when you consider that only about 2% of the entire Morgan Dollar mintage was struck at the Carson City Mint, it’s a wonder any CC Morgans exist today!
When most of the remaining Morgans were sold during the Treasury Hoard release in the early 1960s, a key discovery was made. After performing an audit on the remaining inventory, it was found that there were nearly 3 million CC Morgans left. To avoid another buying frenzy, the Government Services Administration (GSA) encapsulated these coins in special slabs and sold them in a series of seven releases between 1972 and 1980. Many of these coins were broken out of the original slabs, meaning few of these original GSA-slabbed Morgans remain.
Now you can add a trio of these historic Morgans to your personal collection with this three-piece set of Carson City Morgans struck from 1882-1884. Not only will your Morgan Silver Dollars come sonically sealed in their original GSA holders, but they will be graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Gem Mint State-65 (MS65) Uncirculated condition. That grade and authentication will be displayed on a special NGC stars-and-stripes wrap affixed to each holder. To top it off, the special NGC wrap includes another phenomenal feature – the signature of Edmund Moy, the 38th Director of the U.S. Mint!
In addition to your three-coin set, you’ll also receive a certified section of an actual Carson City Morgan bag, an authentic Comstock-area railroad spike, a storybook on the Carson City Mint and the GSA hoard, and a reprint of a 1970s GSA brochure used for the historic sale in the 1970s.
This is your opportunity to get not one, but THREE different year dates of the most famous coin of the Wild West certified, graded and encapsulated in high-grade condition. Fall in love with the romance of the Old West and add these magnificent CC Morgans to your collection today!
- AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR COIN – The Morgan Silver Dollar – so named for its designer, U.S. Mint Assistant Engraver George T. Morgan – has stood the test of time. Struck from 1878-1904 and again in 1921, it was the coin of America’s “Wild West” and jingled in the coin purses of gamblers, gunfighters, soldiers and dance hall girls.
- CLASSIC DESIGNS – Morgan’s historic design depicts a profile of Lady Liberty on the obverse while the reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings. The model used for Liberty was Miss Anna Williams of Philadelphia, who Morgan declared to have the most perfect feminine profile he had ever seen.
- STRUCK IN GLEAMING AMERICAN SILVER – Struck in 26.73 grams of 90% silver from the famous Comstock Lode, the Morgan Silver Dollar is a big coin 38.1 mm in diameter. When this coin was plunked down on a counter, its weight meant real money, pure and simple.
- LEGAL TENDER SILVER DOLLAR – Morgans were $1 legal tender and struck during the heyday of America’s Wild West era where coins were overwhelmingly preferred over paper currency.
- GRADED IN GEM UNCIRCULATED CONDITION – Not only will your CC Morgan Silver Dollars come sonically sealed in their original GSA holders, but they will be graded by the Numismatic Guaranty corporation (NGC) as being in Gem Mint State-65 (MS65) Uncirculated condition. That grade and authentication will be displayed on a special NGC stars-and-stripes wrap affixed to each holder.
- AN AUTOGRAPHED LABEL! – The special NGC wrap includes another phenomenal feature – the signature of Edmund Moy, the 38th Director of the U.S. Mint!
- THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING MORGANS – While millions of Morgan Silver Dollars were struck from 1878 through 1921, massive silver meltings and the ravages of time have taken their toll. Today coin experts believe that only 15% of all Morgans ever struck remain in existence!
