David Akers (1975/88): The 1874-S is similar in overall rarity to the 1866-S motto and the 1868-1873 San Francisco Mint issues. It is very rare in any condition. I know of one borderline uncirculated example of this date and nothing else remotely close. In fact, there aren't really very many 1874-S Eagles around in any grade.
