Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): This date is rare and underrated in all grades and is actually more rare than many of the mintmarked dates of the period. AU and uncirculated examples are very rare. Not available all that often in any grade, the 1850 is generally seen only in VF or EF condition.
