Lot Description
1880-S $20 MS61 NGC. Tall S. In his 1988 Encyclopedia, Breen writes for the issue, "Small Squat S. ... May exist with taller S as on silver dollars." Indeed it does, matching what VAM collectors refer to as the Medium S on '80-S Morgans. This is a mildly prooflike honey-gold twenty with a nice strike and assorted small to moderate marks.
