Notes:
The 1882-S Morgan Silver Dollar is very common in Uncirculated and Prooflike conditions, but is surprisingly scarce as a Deep Mirror Prooflike.   Because of the general high quality of the coins produced at San Francisco, it is easy to find well struck, bright, and attractive examples.  The most common Uncirculated grades is MS-64, followed by MS-65, then MS-63; even MS-67 examples are readily obtainable.  The finest examples graded by PCGS are 29 MS-68's, 3 MS-67's Prooflikes, and 8 MS-66's Deep Mirror Prooflikes.
