David Akers: In terms of overall rarity, the 1899-S is considerably more rare than the 1899-O, although at the Gem level, the two issues are roughly comparable. In Choice Uncirculated and lower grades, this issue can be located with only a moderate amount of difficulty but, in Gem condition, the 1899-S is very rare with probably no more than 20-25 examples known.
