"As the first year of issue this date was saved. Nevertheless the San Francisco issue remains fairly scarce, especially in MS 66 and above (pop=1). All three come well struck with nice luster. The 1892-P & O have a satiny appearance while the 1892-S sometimes comes proof-like."

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 7 MS-65's.
