David Akers (1975/88): Readily obtainable in choice Unc. condition or in proof. The so-called "recut 6" or "overdate" variety is a result of a reverse clash mark. On some specimens most of the word LIBERTY appears in an arc under the date (much as it does on the 1859 and some of the dates in the 1860's) but on others, only the last letter is noticeable beneath the 6 and it is this variety that is erroneously referred to as being an overdate or having a recut 6.
