David Akers (1975/88): The 1864 is not quite as rare as the 1863 but it certainly must be considered to be very rare in all grades. Most of the relatively few business strikes in existence grade only VF. There is also a small number of EF's and perhaps two or three AU's known. I have never seen a strictly uncirculated specimen and only the Miles coin was ever catalogued as such.
