1898-S...is not available today because much of the coinage of the San
Francisco mint that year was sent to the Philippines. Over the years,
hoards of 1898-S through 1900-S coins have found their way back to the
U.S., but these have largely consisted of cleaned EF and AU pieces. True
unc's are very scarce.
Both 1898-P&S come well
The finest Uncirculated examples graded
by PCGS are 3 MS-66's.
