Historically, the 1891-CC is one of just a few Carson City dollars that has been readily available ever since day one. During the century or so since the pieces were minted, Mint State coins have been among the most easily obtainable Carson City Morgan Dollar issues. However, after 1962-1964, when it was found that few remained in Treasury hands in comparison to the large quantities of CC dollars in the early 1880s, the 1891-CC became scarce in a relative sense.
Mint State 1891-CC dollars are considerably scarcer than Carson City issues of the mid-1880s, of course, but there are enough on the market that the issue is not considered to be a key date. At the MS-60 to 62 level, an estimated 40,000 to 70,000 exist, with 20,000 to 40,000 at the next step, MS-63. In MS-64 grade there are about 6,000 to 10,000 coins extant. As most 1891-CC dollars are extensively bag-marked, by definition most are in lower grades. Accordingly, the issue is rare in MS-65 or finer, with about only 1,400 to 2,200 surviving.
