"The design was changed
slightly during this first year, resulting in two types. While the
difference is not dramatic and not usually designated by either PCGS or NGC
on the holder, some collectors do want both types. For 1892-S, the Type I is
the more common one.
Being the first year of issue, all three dates come well
struck with nice luster.
1892-S enjoys strong demand because of its low mintage.
Though it's only an R3 [Scarce], the total MS pop of 89 [as of 1999] is just
five more than an R4 [Very Scarce]."1
The finest Uncirculated example graded by
PCGS is a single MS-67.
