1891-CC is the most common of the late CC Morgan dollars in mint state.  They are typically sharply struck with nice, frosty luster, but plenty of bag marks.  Coins with below average strikes exist, but are easily avoided when making a purchase.  Prooflike coins exist and are common relative to the mint state population, but tend not to have a lot of contrast.  The ''Top 100'' [[1891-CC VAM-3|VAM 3]] "Spitting Eagle" variety is the most popular, but also the most common of all 1891-CC varieties. More recently, the [[1891-CC VAM-7|VAM 7]], which has the same Spitting Eagle reverse but a far date, was discovered and is quite scarce, estimated to have a population of approximately 1% of that of the VAM 3.  While 24 die pairs were shipped to Carson City, it is believed that far fewer were used to produce the mintage and that bags melted in 1918 account for the small number of known varieties.

1891-CC is the most common of the late CC Morgan dollars in mint state. They are typically sharply struck with nice, frosty luster, but plenty of bag marks. Coins with below average strikes exist, but are easily avoided when making a purchase. Prooflike coins exist and are common relative to the mint state population, but tend not to have a lot of contrast. The Top 100 VAM 3 "Spitting Eagle" variety is the most popular, but also the most common of all 1891-CC varieties. More recently, the VAM 7, which has the same Spitting Eagle reverse but a far date, was discovered and is quite scarce, estimated to have a population of approximately 1% of that of the VAM 3. While 24 die pairs were shipped to Carson City, it is believed that far fewer were used to produce the mintage and that bags melted in 1918 account for the small number of known varieties.
