About this set: What is it about the CC cartwheels that has inspired so much interest? The Carson City Morgans have always been an alluring group, rich with history and great fun to collect. Many of them came to the public through the GSA releases, and some of those coins exhibited distinctive rainbow bag toning, often with a matte finish, and sometimes with untoned speckles scattered across the toned areas. Other examples have creamy luster. Interestingly, only one 1889-CC was found in all the GSA releases, but it is not a particularly attractive coin. Finding a nice original toned '89-CC is nearly impossible! By contrast, we are particularly pleased with the beautiful '79-CC in this set. This group is a subset of Sunnywood's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" Collection.
