David Akers (1975/88): This date is a scarce one, certainly head and shoulders above the so-called "common dates" of the series. Overall, the 1877 is similar in rarity to the 1854, 1860 and 1878 among others and it is more rare than the 1867 and 1876, especially in strictly uncirculated condition. Also, in my experience, I have seen more Unc. 1872 twenties than I have 1977's although the 1872 had fewer auction appearances in my survey. The 1877, as scarce as it is, is not as difficult to obtain as the 1874 or 1875. When available, this date is usually in EF or AU condition. Average quality uncs are very scarce and choice mint state pieces are rare. In gem condition, the 1877 is very rare and I have seen only a couple at that level.
