Description & Analysis

The Carson City Mint struck over 1.6 million Morgan dollars in 1891. Unlike the Carson City dollars of the 1880's, some were released into circulation at the time. Others were sold in bag quantity until the 1950's. This date was not well-represented in the GSA hoard, however, and because of that, mint state examples are not nearly as common as earlier Carson City issues.
