Notes:
"The 1903-S, with only 613,000 made, enjoys strong collector demand from the lowest circulated grades on up."

"Strikes for these three dates are typical of the mints that made them (in other words, the O-mint will be soft)."1

The finest Uncirculated example graded by PCGS is a single MS-67.
