David Akers (1975/88): The 1858 is very scarce and desireable in all grades. In terms of overall rarity it is roughly comparable to the 1855, 1856, 1857, 1863 and 1864 among Type I P-Mint issues. Most known specimens grade from VF to AU and strictly uncirculated examples are rare. Choice or gem quality uncs are very rare but not unknown; I have seen several of each quality.
