Ron Guth:

The 1886-S Dime has a relatively small mintage and low survival rate, making it the third or fourth most important Dime of the 1875-1891 period. The 1886-S Dime tracks the 1884-S Dime (another low date) in terms of overall rarity. For instance, in Mint State, the populations of each are very close, but the 1886-S trends toward higher grades. In fact, the PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census starts at MS66 and tops out at MS68, which is exceptionally high for a Dime from this era.
