"Capped die" Morgan dollars occurred only in 1879 and only on CC mintmark coins. The term has nothing to do with grading or with certified coins. The mintmark is repunched - two different sizes of CC mintmark were punched into the die. For 1879CC, this repunched mintmark acquired the popular name "capped die".

Actually no, values are a little lower per grade for this type.
