David Akers (1975/88): The mintage of this date is one of the lowest in the series, but according to the auction data, it ranks squarely in the middle according to rarity by number of appearances (20th) in our 238 catalogue auction survey and rarity by average grade (21st). Choice uncirculated specimens are very rare, and I have seen about the same number of mint state 1864's as I have of 1863.
