This date-variety doesn’t belong to the Carson City Morgan silver dollar series, because it was produced at the New Orleans Mint, seven years after the one in Nevada ceased coining operations. The Bureau of the Mint shipped discarded “CC” coin dies, which workers in Philadelphia had modified to include an “O” mintmark stamped over an obliterated “CC” mintmark, to New Orleans. When mint workers there struck the 1900 silver dollars, remnants of the “CC” mintmark were seen beneath the more sharply detailed one designating the New Orleans origin.

Still, passionate Carson City coin enthusiasts are prone to cling to anything that bears any relationship to their beloved mint. Consequently, many “CC” Morgan dollar collectors will add a 1900-O/CC to their set, similar to the way the “CC” Trade dollar set-builders will include an 1875-S/CC variety in their plans.

The example offered here is all-white and very flashy. Its contact marks are mostly visible on the obverse, and don’t detract from its appearance. In fact, this coin comes very close to the MS-64 condition rating, as suggested by the + (Plus) PCGS added to the numeric grade.

This specimen is what VAM specialists denote as a 10A, as clash marks are visible extending out from Ms. Liberty’s throat, and run vertically from atop the eagle’s left wing to the N in the motto IN GOD WE TRUST.

This piece will surely please the person who owns it.
