As you have read, the 1889 CC Morgan Silver Dollar is very valuable. The value of your 1889 CC Morgan Silver Dollar depends on the condition of your coin. If you haven't had your 1889 CC Morgan Silver Dollar professionally graded, I advise you to do so. Yes, it does cost money to have your coin graded professionally, but it will determine an appropriate value for your coin.

Two of the top premier coin grading companies are PCGS and NGC. There are a number of other coin grading companies, but most collectors prefer to have their coins graded by these two companies.
