Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The business strikes of this date are the most underrated of the 1880's. I have seen fewer choice specimens of this date than I have of any of the others with the possible exception of the 1881. The auction records confirm this as only 22 have been offered in unc. in our 238 catalogue survey compared to 30 of the 1884 (another underrated date), 38 of the 1885 and so on.
