David Akers (1975/88): This is just one of the many grossly underrated dates in the Liberty Head Eagle series. It is very rare and difficult to obtain in any condition and, when located, VF and EF is about all one can expect. I have never seen a strictly uncirculated 1845. This date is just as rare as the low mintage 1844 and is also similar in overall rarity to the 1839 Type of '40 and the 1846.
