Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1853 is one of the more common dates of the type, more or less on par with the 1850, 1851 and 1852. It is available in a wide range of grades from VF to Unc. although strictly uncirculated examples are certainly very scarce, more so, in fact, than uncs of 1851 or 1852.
