David Akers (1975/88): Because of its low mintage, the 1880 is one of the more popular dates in the series. After all, only 1,000 business strikes were minted along with just 36 proofs. However, because this date was hoarded to a degree, once again, by John Beck among others, the 1880 is not nearly as rare as many other dates with significantly higher mintages.
