A scarce-to-rare issue in all grades, the 1903-S is even more elusive than a limited mintage of 1.2 million pieces might suggest. Obviously, many examples of this issue were melted under the terms of the 1918 Pittman Act. This fortunate survivor is fully Unc with a sharp strike, lustrous surfaces and a smattering of mostly small-size abrasions to the obverse. For the grade, a very appealing '03-S Morgan.
