Lead $1 1889-CC PCGS MS62 GULF COAST COLLECTION
Description
Satin white luster throughout with clean surfaces for the modest grade assigned. This is one of classic key dates of the series and worthy of any advanced collection. The strike is bold on the central curls over Liberty’s ear as well as on the eagle’s breast feathers. Furthermore the fields are remarkably clean with minimal signs of bag handling. Mintage of 350,000 pieces and were it not for two monster gem outliers certified by PCGS that are clearly the finest at MS68 and a single MS65, the finest 1889-CC most collectors could ever hope to acquire are MS64 and lower. A coin like this with strong visual appeal and rich creamy luster is well worth pursuing. The Carson City Mint needs no introduction here. The local town required the silver and gold that flowed from the various Comstock mines which oiled the commerce and supported the immense local crowds through the 1870s and into the 1880s, until the metals began to play out. Recoveries from the depths of the Comstock Mines became limited by the cost of digging and refining, and the glory days were in the past. The crowds and miners diminished. This 1889-CC represents the reopening of the Carson City Mint after a four year hiatus while President Grover Cleveland was in office for the first time (1885-1889). His tenure came to an end in 1889 and the Carson City Mint reopened, but not for long as Cleveland was elevated to the Presidency and again, closed the Carson City Mint for good in late 1893! Such are the fleeting dreams of humanity, tastes of success and failure interwoven by the whimsical nature of politics. PCGS 96, NGC 103. A similar white PCGS MS62 coin brought $32,900.00 (8/15) at auction confirming the rarity and desirability of this key Carson City date in Mint State. This coin is being sold with no reserve.
