David Hall: The 1894-S and 1895-S $10 Liberties are two issues that are extremely rare in Mint State condition, but are somewhat underrated rarities known only to a handful of specialists. The 1894-S is rarer than the 1895-S, but both issues are true Mint State rarities. For the 1895-S, fewer than two dozen Mint State examples may survive. Auction appearances of Mint State 1895-S $10 Liberties are few and far between.
