David Bowers tells us of this issue, "Usually very sharply struck on all points, remarkable in view of the huge mintage figure of 12,760,000. In general, the San Francisco Mint earned high marks for quality...typically with satiny lustre, often slightly prooflike." In a similar vein, silver dollar expert Wayne Miller reports, "...most 1881-S dollars are surprisingly uniform in the excellence of their strike, and the brilliance of their luster."
