As one of the leading condition rarities in the Morgan silver dollar series of 1878 to 1921, the appearance of even a low end Mint State 1892-S at auction is a noteworthy event. The Larry H. Miller specimen in PCGS MS-68 is the finest certified 1892-S as well as one of the most famous of all Morgan silver dollars in numismatics. Highly lustrous with a smooth, frosty texture, both sides are brilliant apart from wisps of subtle champagne-gold iridescence. Sharply struck over all design elements, this is an expertly preserved and incredibly beautiful Superb Gem that stands tall among the numerous highlights in the fabulous Miller cabinet.

The San Francisco Mint's silver dollar output 1892 was 1,200,000 coins. This is a smaller total by the standards of the Morgan series, to be sure, but as often related it is the distribution (or lack thereof) of the coins rather than the number struck that was the determining factor in rarity vs. availability. It is distribution, not mintage that explains why an issue like the 1885-CC, with a mintage of just 228,000 coins, is plentiful in all but the finest Mint State grades while the 1896-S, of which five million examples were produced, is scarce to rare at all Uncirculated grade levels. The 1892-S is akin to the 1896-S in this context, and it is one of the rarest of all Morgan silver dollars in Mint State.
