Carson City silver dollars are a valuable
memento of an era in American history when the west was booming.
The silver in these silver dollars was mined in the famous Comstoke
Lode, discovered in the mountains near Carson City, Nevada. The
Carson City mint was established there in 1870 to process the
gold and silver being mined into coins. Morgan silver dollars
were minted there from 1878 thru 1885 and from 1889 thru 1893
making for 13 pieces total. Although having limited mintages,
a significant portion of the silver dollars minted at Carson
City survived in storage at the U. S. Treasury.
The silver dollars in the G. S. A. sale were discovered
in the Treasury's vaults in a 1964 audit after nearly a century
in obscurity. The Carson City silver dollars in this sale were
encapsulated and packaged as pictured above and sold in a series
of auctions to the public in the early seventies.
The Carson City Silver Dollar coins in the following
table are all from the GSA sales and come as issued with all
pertinent packaging and paperwork.
