Double Struck 1884-CC Silver Dollar GSA/NGC Certified
Major Morgan Dollar mint errors are rare. This double struck 1884 Silver Dollar is from the Carson City Branch Mint. Having a combination of rarity (Morgan Dollar), type of mint error (Double Struck) and where it was struck (“CC” Carson City Branch Mint) is phenomenal.
It was sold by the U.S. GSA office in the 1970’s, when the U.S. Government released and sold a hoard of Silver Dollars. Although still in it’s original GSA holder, NGC has certified and graded it “Double Struck 1st Strike 25% Off-Center, Mint State 63 PL.” The first strike was 25% off-center. The second strike was seated properly in the collar and received a normal strike. Although some of the original off-center strike was obliterated, upon close examination, much detail remains on both sides.
Major Carson City mint errors are among the most desired and valuable U.S. errors.
