Estimated grade. Ex. Mehl Sale (1955) Sold by David Akers Numismatics Oct '97 Price realized $3300
David Akers (1975/88): Reasonably scarce as a date (on a par with the 1857-S and 1858-S) but extraordinarily difficult to find better than EF as the data clearly shows. Out of 70 total offerings in the 192 auctions tallied, only 10 pieces graded AU or better! I personally have never seen a choice uncirculated specimen, and only two or three that could even really be called "slidders". Possibly the most underrated date in high grade in the entire gold dollar series.
