A BETTER DATED AND CARSON CITY MINTED

MORGAN SILVER DOLLAR

1885-CC

HERE IS ANOTHER OF MY - SOON TO BE EX - QUALITY MORGAN SILVER DOLLARS. THIS ONE WAS MINTED BACK JUST A SHORT TIME AGO IN 1885 AT THE FAMED CARSON CITY MINT THAT WE ALL WANT COINS FROM. ITS STILL AMAZING TO ME THAT WE CAN GET SO MANY BEAUTIFUL GEMS THAT WERE MINTED SOME 150+ YEARS AGO THAT ARE SO VERY PRETTY TO LOOK AT AND IN SUCH NICE AND UNCIRCULATED CONDITION.

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

DID YOU KNOW THAT THIS DATE, THE 1885-CC, IS THE LOWEST MINTED CARSON CITY MORGAN !!! THE MINTAGE FOR THIS DATE WAS ONLY 228,000 WHICH IS WAY LESS THAN THE 89-CC (
