David Akers (1975/88): Most specimens are well worn and it is not unusual to see this date in Fine or even VG. I have never seen or heard of a strictly uncirculated specimen. In overall rarity, this date is similar to the other S-Mint issues from 1866-1874 although it is not quite as rare as the 1867-S.
