Most 1883-CC Morgan dollars seem to have been moved directly from the Carson City Mint to Washington, DC. They remained there in the Treasury Department vaults until they were sold by the piece in the GSA Morgan dollar auctions of the 1970s and 1980.
Most of the million or so Morgan dollars left in Treasury vaults when the government stopped selling them for face value were Carson City coins. More than half the 1.2 million coin mintage of the 1883-CC remained in the vault, undispersed. Most of the Morgan dollars sold under the GSA program were Carson City mintages dating from 1882-CC through 1884-CC.
