Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

U.S. Coin Values: Morgan Dollars.

About 1881-CC $1

With its original production run of 296,000 pieces, the 1881-CC boasts one of the lowest mintages of any Carson City Morgan dollar, even lower than the key-date 1893-CC, with its mintage of 677,000. However, there are many more survivors of the 1881-CC than the 1893-CC, and this is seen in terms of price and availability. Yes, the 1881-CC is one of the pricier CC Morgans but is available in decent quantities through MS66, above which it becomes a scarce coin. A handful of MS68s exist but are priced beyond the means of most collectors, though they find plenty of eager bids from deep-pocketed registry set collectors. PLs and DMPLs appear in the marketplace with regular frequency, even in the Gem range.

Obverse: Portrait of Liberty centered. On the left are found 7 stars with the words E*PLURIBUS*UNUM followed by 6 stars on the right. The date is positioned at the bottom.

Reverse: The heraldic eagle is centered holding a bunch of arrows and branch surrounded by and olive leaves. The words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA * ONE DOLLAR frame the periphery. Mint mark, if any, appears above the letters DO of DOLLAR.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
