Owner's Comments

A monster bag-toned example of this classic date from the GSA sales of Cqarson City Morgan dollars. This coin features beautiful rich obverse toning, including an area of classic emerald green. We have never seen a more attractive '81-CC. Note the interesting ghost image of a piece of canvas thread under Miss Liberty's chin and on her neck, caused by a thread from the Mint bag canvas fabric lying across the surface of the coin for decades while the coin toned. From Mike DeFalco (Numismatic Enterprises).
