Can't find a match for the 1899.
Thank you Mr Hair (or Ms Hair?). S-3 is exactly it. When I looked on my laptop last night I couldn’t find a matching photo but it pops right up on my phone.
I appreciate the help.

I think the 99 is a S-25. Rick Snow's attribution guide has no photo, only has a description of the S-25 and Poliquin does not have a plate coin for the variety so he has not done an attribution. The 1899 S-15 has a rather wide faint repunching to the east of the lower loop in the 8.
Both dates varieties are listed by Snow as scarce.
I agree, get the crud off and see what all is there. If that is repunching under the second 9 I think it may be a discovery coin.
Looked like repunching to me as well.
Moisten a toothpick in acetone or distilled water and pick away at it a little and see if it will loosen.
