The state-of-the-art San Francisco Mint turned out what are universally regarded as the most beautiful Morgan dollars with silver from bonanza mines such as Comstock and Tombstone. But by the mid-1880s, these mines were producing less silver so mintages fell dramatically. The 1883-S San Francisco mintage was just 6.2 million, about half the number produced there just two years before. Mint-state 1883-S Morgans sell for nearly $3,000! It's the toughest find among the first six S-mint Morgan issues. This nicely-detailed Very Fine quality circulated in the Old West.
