1887-S is one of the less common dates in the series, but typically has good luster and a full strike.  Prooflike coins are scarce and tend to be a little banged up.  One-sided prooflikes occur for this date.  [[1887-S VAM-2|VAM 2]] and [[1887-S VAM-2A|2A]] are Top 100 varieties with a strongly repunched S and can be found fairly easily. [[1887-S VAM-4|VAMs 4]] and [[1887-S VAM-11|11]] are Hot 50 varieties sharing an obverse die with a strongly repunched 1 and 7 in the date.
