David Akers (1975/88): In terms of both overall rarity and condition rarity, the 1875 is almost identical to the 1874. It is slightly rarer as a date than the 1865 and 1866 but not as rare as either in uncirculated condition. When available, the 1875 is usually only VF or EF and strictly uncirculated examples are seldom seen. In choice or gem mint state, the 1875 is surprisingly rare and I doubt if more than a couple of true gems exist.
