Description & Analysis

The 1888-S is one of the important condition rarities with the series. Most of this date that were retained by the Treasury were released long before the massive vault clearing event of the 1960s, and by that time few remained. A few bags were also included in the famous Redfield Hoard of the 1970s, but nearly all of those were lower quality.
