||1890-CC $1 MS64 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Many of the more than 2 million 1890-CC Morgans struck entered circulation or were melted under provisions of the 1918 Pittman Act. Near-Gem is the finest most collectors can hope to obtain as the certified population decreases rapidly in higher grades. Medium-intensity olive-brown and gold patina cascades over the lustrous surfaces of this exquisitely struck specimen. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
