Jaime Hernandez:

The 1893-CC Branch Mint Proof Morgan Dollar is very rare. Most coin experts indicate about 12 examples exist, based off Wayte Raymonds research. The mintage seems to be about right, as about a dozen examples or so have been verified. The coins have a special strike displaying prooflike surfaces and a prooflike sharp strike, giving them the special Branch Mint Proof status.
