Description & Analysis

The 1870-S is comparable in rarity to the 1868-S above and similarly it is virtually unknown any finer than XF with the majority of survivors only grading VF. Only 8,000 pieces were minted and perhaps half a dozen or so are believed to exist today in AU condition with no mint state coins extant.
