David Akers (1975/88): This is the commonest date of the No Motto type after 1855 but it is still a very scarce date, particularly in high grade. While VF and EF examples can be obtained, AU specimens are very difficult to locate and strictly uncirculated pieces are very rare. I have seen several mint state 1861 Eagles including two very choice ones but in terms of both overall rarity and condition rarity, this date is considerably more rare than a number of dates of this type.
