Though not described in the listing, the mint mark is set right and slightly high.
A couple images from an ANACS AU58 specimen, tied with one other as the finest known. Some of the Morgans of this date show planchet striations and are often more weakly struck. (This uncommon occurrance for the San Francisco Mint is generaly only found on 1888-S and 1901-S.)
