Notes:
The 1893-CC Silver Dollar is often found scuffy or heavily bagmarked, thus accounting for a low average Mint State grade.  MS-62's are the most common grade, followed by MS-63's, then MS-61's.  Prooflikes are scarce and Deep Mirror Prooflikes are super rare; again, the average Mint State grade of both is lower than usual.  The finest examples graded by PCGS are 7 MS-65's, 2 MS-65 Prooflikes, and 2 MS-64 Prooflikes.

The finest Branch Mint Proof example graded by PCGS is a single PRBM-67.  PCGS lists eight Branch Mint Proofs in it's Population Report, raising two possibilities:
1) the estimated mintage of 12 Proofs is too low, or
2) the Population Report contains some duplicate submissions
