Estimated grade. Sold by Bowers and Merena Nov '83 price realized $15400
David Akers (1975/88): This is the rarest Philadelphia Mint gold dollar of the 1860'S and also the rarest gold dollar in Unc. after 1861. As a date, it is only marginally less rare than the 1875 but, as I just mentioned, it is actually more difficult to obtain in full mint state than the highly regarded 1875.
