Catalog Notes: The GSA Morgan dollars released by the General Services Administration include a variety of dates mainly represented mostly by scarce Carson City, or CC-mint, Morgan dollar as well as a scattering of pieces from the Philadelphia, San Francisco, and New Orleans Mints. These silver dollars were packaged in rigid plastic (hard pack) and pliable plastic (soft pack) holders and sold via a mail bid system to coin collectors throughout the United States in a series of sales spanning the 1970s and early 1980s.

Some dates are more common, such as the CC Morgan dollars from the mid 1880s (1882-1885) at several hundred thousand examples apiece, while the 1890-CC saw fewer than 4,000 leave government custody in plastic. Those who bought the GSA dollars earlier on often broke the coins out of the bulky cases. However, in more recent years, collectors have come to appreciate the original government packaging as it grows scarcer in the collector market. Nowadays, both PCGS and NGC will grade GSA Morgan dollars while leaving them intact in their GSA holders.

About CDN Prices:
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.
