1889 CC is the "King" of the Carson City Morgan Dollar Series and is rare in all grades when you find one. Most coin dealers, I've spoken with, don't have any in stock. When one comes in, it moves quickly.
Collectors with money buy them without hesitation. There is a reason why...
When you own numismatic coins, you want to own "Key Dates." 'Key Dates' carry a lot of weight. They are highly sought after by investors and collectors. You'll own something that other people want and look for.
Certain dates in the Carson City Morgan dollar series are more rare than others and the 1889 CC is the 'Key Date' to the collection. There were only 350,000 minted. With less than 350,000 left (excluding this one) and more than a billion people in the world, everyone who wants one, can’t have one. There aren’t enough to go around. When you own this coin, you'll be one of the few who do.
For every person who owns an 1889 CC, there are thousands of people who have never seen one in person. You’ll own something everyone can’t own, like a rare painting.
Most Morgan dollars have 'common dates' (the year they were made). This means millions of them were minted (or made) that year and nothing is special about them because of high supply and low demand. "Key Date" coins have low mintages and high buyer demand. People like to own things that are rare and unique. That's why one silver dollar is worth a low amount (a common date) and another silver dollar may be worth hundreds, thousands, or more (a 'Key Date'). As you know, 1889 CC in high mint state condition, sells for thousands of dollars.
Millions of Morgan dollars were destroyed and or lost in circulation. 'Key Dates' are hard to find unless you get them from an investor or collector.
You had several U.S. Mints that produced Morgan dollars: The San Francisco Mint, the Denver Mint, the New Orleans Mint, the Carson City Mint, and the Philadelphia Mint.
The Carson City Mint (Carson City, Nevada) was open for a limited time and shut down in 1893. Morgan dollars from the Carson City Mint are rare and harder to find than most coins from all the other U.S. mints. Only coins made from 90% silver or gold were minted there.
If you know someone who owns Morgan Dollars, 9 times out of 10 they won't have an 1889 CC. It will be some other date from one of the other mints unless they're an investor or collector who specifically searched to find one. When you own this coin you'll be holding history in low supply and high demand in your hand.
This is from the era where money was made from silver and gold. This collector's item is 90% silver and you'll feel the weight when you hold it.
This coin is Certified by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as PCGS Genuine - VG (Very Good) Details - rim damage (it has a tiny rim nick). You have the comfort of knowing this 'Key Date' was authenticated by one of the most respected coin grading services in the business.
