Description & Analysis

With a respectable (by S-mint eagle standards) mintage of 228,000 pieces, collectors should have little trouble locating a circulated 1885-S in today's market. Advanced specialists, on the other hand, will have to wait a considerable amount of time before a low-to-mid Uncirculated example appears at auction.
