Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1893-S is a moderately scarce date in all grades, although it is not as difficult to obtain in choice condition as the 1892-S or the four S Mint coins immediately following (1894-1897). It should not be grouped with the common dates of the series since it is really quite scarce in strictly uncirculated condition, and very scarce in gem condition.
