David Hall: The 1930-S is an interesting issue. It is fairly common in circulated grades, but it is definitely scarce in mint state. It is way rarer in mint state and Gem condition than the San Francisco Mint issues that follow, including the ultra low mintage 1931-S. The 1930-S is usually decently struck by S-Mint Buffalo nickel standards. Luster is usually very frosty and iridescent.
