Description & Analysis

Despite the general perception among novice collectors, the 1945-S Micro S is not a rare variety, and circulated and BU examples are generally available with patience. Strike is, however, a problem, and locating a sharply struck Gem or Superb Gem is a task for the most dedicated and affluent specialist.
