Notes:
The 1891-CC Morgan Silver Dollar is fairly common in Uncirculated condition and only relatively scarce as a Gem.  Prooflike and Deep Mirror Prooflike examples are scarce in all grades and turn rare in MS-65.  The typical Uncirculated grade is MS-63, followed by MS-62 and MS-64, in that order.  The finest examples graded by PCGS are a single MS-67, a single amazing MS-68 Prooflike, and a single MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflike.
