1885-S is a somewhat scarce date, typically found with good luster, but often with banged up surfaces and a below-average strike more characteristic of a New Orleans coin.  Prooflike coins exist, but almost never with deep mirrors. One-sided prooflike coins tend to have mirrors on the reverse only. Two varieties, [[1885-S VAM-6|VAMs 6]] and [[1885-S VAM-9|9]], share an S/S reverse die, with the VAM 9 also having a misplaced date.

1885-S is a somewhat scarce date, typically found with good luster, but often with banged up surfaces and a below-average strike more characteristic of a New Orleans coin. Prooflike coins exist, but almost never with deep mirrors. One-sided prooflike coins tend to have mirrors on the reverse only. Two varieties, VAMs 6 and 9, share an S/S reverse die, with the VAM 9 also having a misplaced date.
