Though rather common at grades AU-58 and below, honest to goodness Choice Mint State examples of the 1883-S are rare commodity. The present example exhibits a subtle cameo effect between the fully frosted, well struck devices and the ever so subtly prooflike luster in the fields on both sides. Contact marks are evident but small and evenly distributed, the ideal situation for a coin at this grade level.
