The Survival Estimate represents an average of one or more experts' opinions as to how many examples survive of a particular coin in three categories: 1) all grades, 2) 60 or better, and 3) 65 or better. These estimates are based on a variety of sources, including population reports, auction appearances, and personal knowledge. Survival estimates include coins that are raw, certified by PCGS, and certified by other grading services.
Numismatic Rarity converts the Survival Estimate for a particular coin into a number from 1 to 10 (with decimal increments) based on the PCGS Rarity Scale. The higher the number, the more rare the coin.
Relative Rarity By Type
Relative Rarity By Type ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Type. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
Relative Rarity By Series
Relative Rarity By Series ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Series. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
David Akers (1975/88):
The 1900-S is a very common date, one of the five commonest Liberty Head Double Eagle issues from the San Francisco Mint and one of the most easily obtainable dates in the entire Liberty Head series. It is virtually identical with respect to both population rarity and condition rarity to the 1899-S. This date is readily available in all grades from VF to Unc-60. In choice mint state, the 1900-S is moderately scarce and true gems are very scarce, on a par with gems of most of the S-Mint twenties of the 1890's. A few superb examples of this date exist.
