1900 O/CC Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS65 + This 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar has an O for New Orleans mintmark punched over a Carson City mintmark. We offer the coin certified in mint state 65 plus (MS65 +) condition by PCGS. "Plus, Grades" exhibit exceptional eye appeal for the grade and constitute the top 30% of the coins in the grade. PCGS has certified 943 coins in MS65 condition with only 70 coins having the + designation. This coin has a New Orleans mintmark (O) punched over a Carson City (CC) Mintmark. How could this be, when those two mints are so far apart? The Philadelphia Mint was responsible for making all the dies used in all the mints, including the branch mints. Thus, Philadelphia sent dies with O mintmarks to New Orleans and dies with CC mintmarks to Carson City. However, the Carson City Mint made no silver dollars after 1893, so there was no need for Philadelphia to send dies there in 1900! Curiously, this error was made on more than one die. Were the 1900-O/CC Dollars made using old leftover dies from years earlier, or did an engraver make a mistake by punching a CC mintmark into some reverse dies in 1900?
