1899-S is a moderately scarce date, similar to others from 1898-1902.  It is typically an attractive issue, with a good strike, attractive luster, and not heavily bagmarked. This makes it, along with 1900-S, one of the easier late San Francisco Morgans to find in high grade.  Prooflike coins are found with little difficulty, but lack contrast.  The only variety of significant interest for 1899-S is the ''Top 100'' [[1899-S VAM-7|VAM 7]], with a strongly repunched date.

1899-S is a moderately scarce date, similar to others from 1898-1902. It is typically an attractive issue, with a good strike, attractive luster, and not heavily bagmarked. This makes it, along with 1900-S, one of the easier late San Francisco Morgans to find in high grade. Prooflike coins are found with little difficulty, but lack contrast. The only variety of significant interest for 1899-S is the Top 100 VAM 7, with a strongly repunched date.
