1881-S is one of the first dates someone looking for a stunning, high-grade Morgan should look at. They are typically flashy and well-struck, and are plentiful in high grade, making them ideal type coins, giving the buyer the opportunity to cherrypick for quality. Because of common ejection doubling on the obverse, especially at the date, these can be very difficult to attribute, as actual date doubling may be obscured by ejection (machine) doubling. The most popular varieties for 81-S involve die breaks on the reverse -- with VAMs 1B and 54B both being popular.
