Jaime Hernandez:

The 1948-S Lincoln Cent is a common issue in the Lincoln Cent series. Over 80 million examples were struck and many of them were saved in rolls or even bags. Examples in circulated grades up to about MS66 can easily be found from rolls or can be bought at a very affordable price. In MS67 they are scarce. Anything grading higher than MS67 is very scarce to rare.
