Each 1883-CC Morgan Dollar Coin in this online JM Bullion listing was sent to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation for grading. Typically, NGC will remove a coin from any original packaging and insert it into a special plastic slab. However, because the original GSA holders are so popular, NGC has retained this iconic packaging here and applied a label across the front containing the certification details.
The obverse of 1883-CC Morgan Silver Dollars contains a bust of Lady Liberty. This portrait was designed by George T. Morgan in 1878 and today is considered an American classic. In it, Lady Liberty faces to the left and wears both a Phrygian cap and a crown of wheat and cotton. Inscriptions on the obverse read 1883, E Pluribus Unum.
On the reverse face of these Morgan Silver Dollar Coins, you’ll find a rendering of the heraldic eagle. Here, this majestic bird is shown without the shield upon its chest as seen on the traditional seal. However, the bird does carry the iconic olive branch and arrows in its talons. Other details include the Carson City mintmark and inscriptions reading United States of America, In God We Trust, One Dollar.
Following the California Gold Rush of 1849, Americans waited with bated breath for the next great mining opportunity. For many, that would be Comstock Lode, a silver ore lode in Virginia City, Nevada. The Carson City Mint was established nearby so that the government could conveniently produce coins from the abundance of nearby silver. Today, the name Comstock Lode carries an almost mythical weight, as does the legendary Carson City Mint. These historic sites operated side by side in a time of outlaws and gunslingers, in a time when anything seemed possible on the American frontier.
