In mint-state quality you'd pay nearly $1,000 for this 1886-S Morgan silver dollar. But today you can get the historic issue in About Uncirculated quality for significantly less. For many Morgan dates far fewer San Francisco issues were output than Philadelphia or Denver coins. This S-mint issue represents just 2.5% of 1886's total output. That low mintage number means these coins are tough to find and priced accordingly. About Uncirculated quality is often a great choice for scarce issues such as this. Although these AU coins are much more affordable than BU, they still feature original mint luster and just a trace of wear on the highest points of the obverse and reverse engravings.
