David Akers (1975/88): Unlike most Liberty Head Eagles of this period, the 1847 is not a scarce date and it is relatively easy to obtain in VF and EF grades. AU specimens are also moderately plentiful and strictly uncirculated examples are encountered with greater frequency than any other date of this decade except the comparably rare 1847-O and 1849. I have seen a number of choice and gem mint state pieces of this date.
