Notes:
"This year is similar to the 1901, but all three mints are scarcer then their 1901 counterparts. The 1902-O has long been recognized for its scarcity."

"Strikes of the three issues are typical of most other Barber years, except that the 1902-S rarely has a P/L appearance."1

The finest Uncirculated example graded by PCGS is a single MS-66.
