    jdimmick,

    It's not completely clear from my reference, but it appears that the 89-CC, 92-CC, and 93-CC were never sold. It also indicates that a total of 298,975 were never sold, but doesn't indicate what happened to them.

    The 89CC was sold in the mixed lot category in the last GSA Sale. I don't really know on the 92CC and the 93CC, but more than likely they were also sold in the final sale.
    If It doesn't have great eye appeal, I don't want it.

    I also remember seeing that someone received a Seated Dollar in a soft plastic GSA holder, an early 1860's piece.

    I believe that the 89-CC was offered for sale about two years ago.

    One thing that must be pointed out here, and that is by the time the treasury stopped releasing silver dollars to the public, a lot of the dates had already been released, going back to the late 40s. Because there were few examples of some dates in the GSA sale does not mean that there were never any in the hoard. A good example is the 92-CC, several bags were released prior to the treasury stopping the redemption of silver certificates.

    On the flip side, the 89-CC and 93-CC were either fully released into circulation, or whatever the treasury had were melted in the great melts of 1918-1921 and 1944.

    A lot of knowledge buried on this forum. I was searching for something else and this thread came up. I think I remember reading it 20 yrs ago or so. Fun going down the proverbial rabbit hole, even if you don’t find what you were looking for
