Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1876 is the second rarest date after 1875. When available, it is generally offered in Unc. or proof, although truly choice Unc. pieces are very difficult to obtain. Many Uncs. that I have seen are very softly struck. Deceptive first strikes exist of this date as they do for virtually every date hereafter. Once again, there should be no confusion since a genuine proof 1876 can be identified by the fact that the date slants down slightly to the right whereas circulation strikes either have the date level or slanting up slightly to the right.
