Notes:
"This is the last of the "middle years." The 1904-S is similar to the 1903-S, but slightly more common.

Both dates this year come reasonably well struck; many of the high end (MS64 and above) 1904-S dimes we’ve seen have deep toning with ample luster underneath. A “sleeper” key date, the 1904-S is almost always on our want lists in various mint state grades."1

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