Lot Description
1880-S $20 MS61 NGC. Tall S, one of two mintmark sizes known for this conditionally scarce issue. This sun-gold representative is sharply struck with good luster and surprisingly few marks for the MS61 level. The hair curls near the ear are slightly glossy. The 1880-S becomes a formidable rarity in MS63, although MS61 examples are available for only a moderate premium above melt.
