David Akers (1975/88): Despite the fact that its mintage is slighty less than the mintage of the 1874-CC, the 1875-CC is a much commoner date than the 1874-CC. The difference in rarity is especially evident in Unc. where the 1874-CC is rare and the 1875-CC is relatively common. As a date, the 1875-CC is one of the three most common Carson City Mint twenties (the 1884-CC and the 1890-CC are the other two) and it is also one of the most common in mint state. A substantial number of uncs (literally hundreds of pieces) exist and only in gem condition can the 1875-CC be considered rare.
