Issued from 1878 to 1904 and again in 1921, the Morgan Silver Dollar was the second-longest-running design on the US silver dollar. The design replaced the Seated Liberty design in 1878 following a five-year hiatus in silver dollar coin. It would see the nation into the 20th century, linger through World War I, and enjoy one final fresh strike during the early years of the Roaring 20s.

Morgan Silver Dollars were just in their third year of issue in 1880 when the Carson City Mint struck the specimens available in this listing. Now more than 140s years old, these coins represented the lowest single-mint issue of 1880. By 1880, there were four branch mints of the US Mint striking Morgan Dollars each year.
The Philadelphia Mint, San Francisco Mint, and Carson City Mint had been striking the coins each year so far dating back to 1878. In 1879, the New Orleans Mint joined production following its reopening after a long closure during the US Civil War and the Reconstruction Era. In 1880, Philadelphia issued a staggering 12.6 million coins, the New Orleans Mint 5.305 million coins, and the San Francisco Mint 9.163 million coins. The 591,000 coins from Carson City is a relatively scant figure compared to those numbers.
Liberty is on the obverse side of 1880-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coins. This left-profile effigy shows Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap on her head with the coronet and laurel wreath in her hair. There are also 13 stars in this design field.
The heraldic eagle of the United States is featured in the reverse design of 1880-CC Morgan Silver Dollars. This design shows the bald eagle in front-facing relief with the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other. There is a wreath framing the eagle and a CC mint mark from Carson City.
These 1880-CC Morgan Silver Dollar Coins are available in Mint State 63 condition. Coins in this condition have impaired mint luster, several small contact marks present, the possibility for one or two larger contact marks, and small hairlines that are visible without magnification.
