    This past weekend, I finally maned up, and purchased a nice vf 1893 CC Morgan. I've always been under the impression. That this date, is the 2nd best CC? Of course, next to the 1889. Which is obviously the king. I've looked at the numbers and done my research. So am I, 100% correct in calling this date the 2nd best CC in the series?

    Depending on grade, it or the '79-CC.

    That's a tough one for me to call because the 80CC, 81CC and the 85CC have very low mintages, but many of these remained in the Treasury vaults until the releases of the 20th century. So, if you're looking for the high-grade coins, the 93CC will be pricey.

    In the PCGS Morgan CC set registry, the 79CC and 93CC both get weight of 3. Inexplicably, so does the 92CC. 89CC gets a weight of 5. All the rest get a weight of 1 or 2. In PCGS auction prices realized, a VF35 79CC goes for about $500, whereas a VF35 93CC goes for about $800.

    My experience is that the 93CC is the rarest CC Morgan after the 89CC. Enjoy your coin!

    You can always make it easy on yourself and go by the Red Book.

    Every US collector should have a Red Book. It's great for looking up mintages. However, it doesn't work for survivorship. For example, the 81CC and 85CC Morgans have lower mintages than the 89CC. Yet, the 89CC is far rarer. Presumably lots of 89CCs went in the melting pot or were worn out in circulation, but mint state 81CCs and 85CCs relaxed in bags in government vaults until the 20th century.

    I have like 5 of them? I don't really pay much attention, to the prices anyway.

    No the prices are a guide not reality.

    The prices are way off on most coins. The reality of pricing is from auctions and recent sales, not out of a book. Prices guides are just that, a guide.

    Give it time. The PO is slow.
